Last Saturday was Small Business Saturday, a day to appreciate the important role small businesses play in our local economy. The high streets and parades across the Orpington constituency are home to a wide selection of small businesses. They provide excellent and unique goods and services, as well as offering important employment opportunities. Last week, Jo popped in to show his appreciation for local businesses on Orpington High Street, visiting Café Medi and Masala Dabbas.
Jo said ‘Small businesses contribute a great deal to our local community and economy. In the run up to Christmas I hope constituents choose to buy their presents or celebrate in the many different independent shops, restaurants, bars and cafes we have across the constituency.’
