THE Federation of Small Businesses in Hampshire has lent its support to the Independents’ Day campaign launched by Skillsmart Retail and the National Skills Academy for Retail.

The campaign calls for the public to buy at least one item from their local independent shops on July 4 to help promote the range of goods on offer in Hampshire’s high streets, and help keep them alive.
