Recently I had the opportunity to visit number 10 Downing street, with ninety nine other businesses who (along with myself) were chosen by Small Business Saturday as their small biz 100 for 2016. This was an amazing opportunity to celebrate being a small business in the U.K.
The reception was in the afternoon, drinks and canapes were served in elegant surroundings. It was great to see and meet the other businesses and to hear their stories.
Number 10, is a beautiful house, much larger then I expected with many rooms and offices inside. I also noticed lots of beautiful paintings on the walls.
It was also a great way to launch the Small Business Saturday event, which this year was on the 3Rd December and the campaign is a fabulous way to encourage people in the U.K to support local small businesses, in the lead up to Christmas.
