Sutton’s Small Business Saturday Event 7th December


Sutton Council is supporting Small Business Saturday by organising an event on 7th December for small traders and social enterprises to showcase their businesses to residents and shoppers in Sutton.

The event will be held in the St Nicholas Centre, Sutton High Street running from 10am to 15:00pm.

What is Small Business Saturday?

In the UK, Small Business Saturday is a grassroots campaign to support local independent businesses. Small businesses of all kinds are taking part in a variety of activities including planning special deals for customers, showcasing events, taking place in joint marketing with local media and much more. Small Business Saturday works when small businesses take action.

  1. I think this is a great idea and I applaud the support that this authority is giving it..

  2. In the news today: ‘Don’t listen to Labour on economy’, says Nick Clegg

    For impartial, non-partisan assessments of what’s been happening in Britain’s economy, try the Financial Times and The Economist instead.
    Martin Wolf: Osborne has now been proved wrong on austerity (FT 26 September 2013)

    Sam Brittan: Britain let down by its bean-counting politicians

    Compare the success of different countries in emerging from the Great Recession.
    The clear winner among the Group of Seven rich countries is Canada, where output is 5 per cent above the its previous peak. (But I will not go on about it lest it look as if I am trying to curry favour with Mark Carney, the retiring governor of the Bank of Canada, who takes over at the Bank of England next week).

    Next in line is the US, where output is 3 per cent above its previous peak. This is not bad going for a country whose much maligned constitutional arrangements split responsibility for economic policy between the presidency, the Federal Reserve and two Houses of Congress – themselves often divided in their partisan allegiance. Well behind is Germany with just over 1 per cent.

    We strike negative territory with France, where output is nearly 1 per cent below its previous peak; and then descend to the UK, where the shortfall is almost 4 per cent. Bottom of the class is Italy, with a fall of nearly 9 per cent. The well known structural problems of that country are confounded by its being locked into the euro, with the escape route of devaluation shut off.

    I can easily post more links if that would help to promote informed, open debate.
