James Irvine, Co-owner of On the Green Interiors said: “We’ve been delighted with the response to the ‘Seek out Santa’ Trail as part of Small Business Saturday. It’s been great to be part of an initiative that highlights local independent brands and shops across Poole and encourages families to explore and chance upon new shops!”

Les Robertson, BID Manager, Poole BID said “Shopping locally is a way of supporting the people who live around you. By shopping, eating and drinking at a local small business, you are helping boost the local economy. Small Business Saturday and the festive activities around Christmas are a key part of our plans to create awareness of what’s on offer in Poole and encourage shoppers into the shops all year round.”

Adrian Trevett, Economic Development Manager, Borough of Poole, added: “Small businesses are vital for the economy of Poole and account for over 95% of our companies. We should all do what we can to support them and this really means spend our money with them!”
