The owner of a local business has been invited to Downing Street as part of an annual small business campaign.
Donna Nichol, owner of Chloe James Lifestyle, in the High Street, St Albans, was one of 100 businesses from around the country chosen to mark Small Business Saturday.
The initiative is a not-for-profit campaign that highlights the success of small businesses and encourages people to shop locally.
Donna, who specialises in selling fashion, jewellery and gifts, joined other small business owners at a reception at 10 Downing Street and the small business minister Margot James also attended.
Donna said: “Small Business Saturday is such a positive initiative supporting all sorts of small businesses throughout the UK.
