He said: ‘Small Business Saturday is a superb campaign that highlights all the amazing things that small businesses in our community are doing. It’s great that we’re recognising the contribution they make to society.’

Businesses taking part were; Digital Dinos, set up by Carl Hewitt, Rock Clothing started by Kieran O’Toole and Jason Franklin, Roses Bakery founded by Rosie Newton, Shop Geona, started by Megan Crosby and Kinda Holy, set up by Ella Poingdestre.
