Saturday 6th December will be Small Business Saturday 2014 a whole day devoted to spreading the word and sharing the love for the hard working independent businesses across the UK and beyond.
Small businesses are at the very heart of every community, they often offer unique products sometimes handmade with a great shopping experience and personal touch.
For Christmas why not browse your local shops or online stores and see if you can find something special for loved ones not ‘made in China’ but from here in the UK from your neighbours.
Online shopping can also be local, their are many independents running successful online shops selling good quality products. One of our favourite online shops in Ringwood is Balloonarray selling balloons and party accessories for every occasion.
Ringwood Town is having its Christmas Switch Lights On also on 6th December so a great opportunity to expereince Christmas and support the discover some amazing local businesses.
