Supporting local small businesses

Supporting local small businesses

In support of Small Business Saturday (5 December) and the Shop Local campaign all year round, here's a handy guide to some local small businesses and ideas for festive gifts:Support local businesses this Christmas.pdf [pdf] 634KB

We reached out to our enterprise network and produced this directory to help if you'd like to shop for presents or treat yourself, and support local businesses at the same time.

Small Business Saturday UK is a grass-roots, non-political, non-commercial campaign. It encourages us to support and promote small businesses in our communities this Saturday, especially important during the pandemic, and at other times.

Buying local:

  • boosts the local economy;
  • employs local people and protects jobs;
  • offers unique and often handmade gifts, with good deals;
  • reduces our carbon footprint;  
  • strengthens communities and local character.

Happy shopping.

Tap4 issues

This quarter, we thought you’d find our 2020/21 Annual Report more useful than a standalone issue of TAP4.

Why? Because it includes more detail on many of the topics we’d otherwise include in the latest TAP4 issue.

  • a breakdown of how we spent EVERY PENNY from each pound of rent you'd paid us, 

  • how building NEW BUILD HOMES benefits you, regardless of whether you live in one, 

  • and the exact number of COMPLAINTS we’ve received, as well as some examples of how we’ve learnt from them (such as missed appointments, fly tipping, and our Antisocial Behaviour Policy).
