Over 30 businesses braved the elements to hear the guest speaker Toby Perkins, the shadow minister for small businesses. Following his short presentation there was a lively discussion about what government can do to help small businesses.
“This was the first Business Forum we have held for a little while so I was impressed with the turn out” said Clive.
“These are very difficult times for businesses but if we are to grow the economy – as we so desperately need – then it is small businesses like the ones in this room tonight that will lead the way. That is why it is so important that politicians like me make time to listen to their views and ideas.”
