Ahead of Small Business Saturday in 10 days time I had the pleasure of joining SHS Products in celebrating the 10th Anniversary of  their company. It was wonderful to learn more about the history of their handrail systems manufacturing business and to look around the factory. Small businesses, especially those in Aldridge-Brownhills are a vital part of our local economy and we should support them.

Small Business Saturday, on the 5th December, is an excellent way to highlight the importance of local businesses in our area and I am looking forward to visiting many of them in the around my constituency.
