Ahead of Small Business Saturday on December 3rd 2016, Jane Hutt said
“As a champion of my local high streets, living and shopping in Barry, I know how important it is to back our local traders- the contribution small businesses make to our community cannot be underestimated. They support us throughout the year and provide a service that is often unique and unrivalled.
I am urging everyone to shop local and support our small businesses. I always do my Christmas shopping on the great Barry High street and have been visiting small businesses in past weeks ahead of Small Business Saturday on December 3rd.
I am pleased that back in September the Welsh Government announced that its £98m Small Business Rates Relief scheme will be extended for 2017
