Lib Dems support Small Business Saturday

After the year they have had, small businesses need a break.

So many have struggled as a result of the pandemic, either unable to trade or severely restricted.

Think of all those little independent shops who have been closed, open, closed and open again throughout the year.

The weeks before Christmas should be their busiest time.

The first Saturday in December is always Small Business Saturday, a day when we encourage people to support small businesses. This year it has even more resonance. We would miss the vibrant diversity of our local communities if we lost these assets.

Lib Dem parliamentarians have been out and about supporting small businesses in their constituencies. Here’s a flavour of what they have been up to:

In fact, if you check out Sarah’s Twitter, she’s been in an awful lot of shops in her Richmond Park constituency.

And Munir is pulling pints:https://twitter.com/agcolehamilton/status/1335260721911713793?s=20

And Alex is in a superb gift shop and cafe in West Edinburgh. Christine Jardine holds her surgeries there and is very partial to the jewellery and artwork they sell.
