The 4th of December this month was Small Business Saturday and we are all about supporting the businesses in our town centre – no matter what size they are and what time of the year it is.

There’s such a different variety of businesses in our town centre, small independents, national brands – we love them all! On that note, we thought we’d take the chance to highlight just a handful of the businesses in our town centre and how you can support them this Christmas.
