Small Business Saturday came to Cambridge!

As a small business it can sometimes be tough to find your place in the vast sea of chain stores and big brands. This is why it is so important and so wonderful that there are brilliant initiatives such as Small Business Saturday! The program pledges to help independent businesses in the UK to gain publicity through social media and other happenings around the country. It all culminates in Small Business Saturday on the 3rd of December where we all join in the request for more people to shop small and local this Christmas.

Last week the Small Business Saturday bus tour came to Cambridge and Tracy went along with needles and yarn to help teach some knitting. It was a wet and grey day but this didn’t dampen the mood on the bus. Alongside other small Cambridge based businesses we got the chance to chat and share experiences as well as making useful business links and meet the mayor!


Tracy met the lovely people behind Cambridge based gift shop Podarok, the tempting Cambridge Cake Boutique and the fabulous Dance Matters.

With Small Business Saturday coming up on the 3rd of December we hope you will all take the opportunity to support the small business around you; be it the local butchers, the independent pub on the corner, or your favourite small alpaca yarn provider!

Shop small this December!
