Small Business Saturday 2019
2019 had to be the best year yet in terms of shops taking part in Small Business Saturday.
Starting with 10 of the 47 shops in Common Road, the Parish Councillors toured the Village visiting the other 30 shops with their final stop was at the new Bella Armoré which opened on Saturday afternoon.
Parish Chairman, Councillor Dan Kinsey said ‘what a fantastic #SmallBusinessSaturday in Wombourne, 2019! We had loads of businesses sign up this year, and even appeared to have the weather on our side. What a beautiful day to get out supporting our fantastic variety of local businesses’.
We would like to say a heart felt thank you to each and every business who made the Councillors so welcome, thank you to everyone who took the time to pose for photos, and congratulations to all those so busy they could not spare the time for a photo – we clearly have some much loved and well supported local businesses!
We really hope the Parish Council’s support helped to get the message out to #shoplocal.
Wishing you all the very best of trading in the run up to Christmas, and hoping many more local residents will be walking through your doors over the next few weeks and into the new year.’
Below are the photo’s from the day, we hope you enjoy looking at them.
