So, we are coming out of Covid 1 Imprisonment, gradually.
How can we support local businesses?
Mike Cherry – FSB National Chairman
This is really important, what you are doing by staying small, you are boosting the local economy, employing local people, you are then helping local business grow organically, using local people, and buying local produce, you are not funding some conglomerate directors bank balance, a local win win. Add to this a fantastic shopping experience.
As a businessman I have mutated over the years into different roles, but always stayed local, having family in the north east has kept me motivated to keep local, do my best local, “I am a local”.
Why not give me your local success story, we have an enormous wealth of local talent here in Teesside, recently backed up by the UK Government setting up a Head Quarters for The prestigious office of The Treasury in Darlington, our own Mayor of Teesside Ben Houchen securing The new “Freeport” within Tees Dock, British Steel site at Redcar being levelled to create a brand new industrial centre for technical advancement and innovation, all excellent pointers to bring prosperity back to Teesside and the North East.
Being local, and staying local is only one way of bringing our economy back to pre-covid levels, our businesses need your support, please show them “a bit of love”.
