FAREHAM MP Suella Fernandes has urged people to support small businesses as she showed her support for Small Business Saturday.
Miss Fernandes visited The Clock Tower Tea and Coffee House in Warsash this week in advance of the annual event tomorrow.
She said: ‘Small businesses are a vital part of British society.
‘They are hugely important to support vibrant town centres and village shopping areas, which people value so much, and for keeping a good variety of independent shops.
‘They deserve our respect and support all year round, so I’m urging people to support them as part of this campaign as they do their Christmas shopping.’
The Clock Tower Tea and Coffee House in Shore Road, is run by Carol Miles from Wickham and employs four people.
