Small Business Saturday - 5th December 2020

Small Business Saturday is a nationwide campaign to promote small businesses and encourage people to ‘shop local’ and support independent businesses in their communities.  On the day itself, customers support all types of small businesses, online, in offices and in shops, and many small businesses take part by hosting events and offering discounts.  Before then, the SBS campaign bus crosses the country calling at about 20 towns offering free mentoring sessions for small businesses and giving them the opportunity to showcase their businesses to the passing public and be profiled across the campaign’s social media channels.  At the time of writing it is expected that the bus will visit Pateley Bridge on the afternoon of Friday 6th November.  Pateley Bridge Town Council keenly supports all local businesses, and is even more appreciative of them following the incredible efforts they have made to help residents during the pandemic.  We are particularly grateful to Kirsty Hannam, who originally invited SBS to visit Pateley Bridge whilst she was running the Visit Nidderdale website, so huge thanks go to her on behalf of so many local businesses who should benefit from this initiative.  The event will be organised by this Council with the support of Harrogate Borough Council.
