Support your local independents as part of Small Business Saturday this weekend.

This national initiative aims to promote retailers with annual revenues of under £10m, and is being backed by companies across the district.

Wheathampstead businesses are giving away around £2,000 in prizes as part of their contribution to Small Business Saturday.

There will be many one-day-only offers to tempt shoppers to shop locally and if they buy something or consult one of the businesses taking part they will receive a free prize draw entry to win one of many fabulous prizes on offer.

No. 10 The High Street has been given over for the day to those businesses that don’t have a shop on the High Street.

The event is being organised by WEB, the Wheathampstead Business Group and supported by a Locality Budget Grant.
