ALAN MAK: My delight at FatFace’s £5m investment in Havant

Have your say

BUSINESSES are gearing up for what they hope will be a busy weekend.

Havant MP David Willetts is the latest person to show his support for Small Business Saturday, which takes place across Havant and Waterlooville on December 7.

Council car park charges will be suspended for the day to encourage people to shop locally.

Marie Telford, owner of Hayling Island Bookshop, in Mengham, said: ‘I hope lots of people will take advantage of it and support their local businesses across Havant borough.’
