Caroline Flint joined father and son Roy & Chris Taylor this weekend to highlight Small Business Saturday on 3 December
The MP called in to Tickhill’s best known shop, Taylors of Tickhill, to promote the importance of small businesses to our economy.
Said Caroline: “It was a pleasure to meet Chris and Roy Taylor and to take the opportunity to get a few treats for the weekend.
“Taylors of Tickhill has been serving local people for nearly seventy years. They know their customers, order goods in to meet their demands, deliver to homes, and run an exceptional business.
“Small businesses are at the heart of our small towns, and Small Business Saturday is a reminder to everyone to shop local, to value the small, independent stores that provide a service on our doorsteps, so we don’t lose them.”
Said Chris Taylor: “I am delighted that Caroline has taken time once again to promote the cause of small businesses in her constituency. Small businesses are at the heart of the local economy. Without them Tickhill would be shadow of the place it is today. It is because we have roots in the community and loyal customers going back generations who shop local that we are still thriving today.”
The Don Valley MP, spent her afternoon shopping in Tickhill before buying her Christmas tree from Juicy Fruits grocers.
Small Business Saturday began in the UK in 2013 to promote the importance of small businesses to local communities and our economy.
