Westminster Council urged to back Small Business Saturday

Labour Councillors have urged Westminster Council to support Small Business Saturday which is taking place on 6 December.

The brainchild of Chuka Ummana MP who called for the UK to have its own version of Small Business Saturday and helped set up the campaign to make it happen, last year’s event generated £500 million extra of spending into the pockets of small business. Last year 40% of local councils took part and 50 small business organisations were involved. Hundreds of events took place across the country.

Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg, Leader of the Labour Group, said:

“Labour is the party of small business and we are determined to see more people in Westminster setting up businesses, leading business, and working in businesses. Small Business Saturday celebrates small businesses and might help inspire others to start new businesses, bring new customers to local firms, and help create a buzz on the high street. Small businesses right across Westminster – on the Harrow Road, Church Street, Edgware Road, Maida Vale and Lupus Street could benefit from the Council taking an active role in supporting Small Business Saturday”.
