George Eustice, Member of Parliament for Camborne, Redruth and Hayle has commended small businesses and welcomed Small Business Saturday.
This year, Small Business Saturday comes at the end of a hugely challenging period for small businesses, with many facing long periods of closure and reduced income due to the pandemic. Businessmen and women across Camborne, Redruth and Hayle have been commended for the part they have played in responding to the coronavirus pandemic to mark Small Business Saturday.
The Government is determined not to be blown off course by the pandemic and deliver on its promise, made at the General Election one year ago, to level up towns and communities across the whole country. It is positive to see that the Camborne Town Board is working hard to submit £25 million bid as part of the Government’s Town Deal initiative to help transform our community and livelihoods. Historic England has also recently announced that the area around Redruth’s Fore Street will receive £1.68m in funding giving it the green light to begin local recovery and regeneration.
George commented, “2020 has been a very challenging year for small business and the high street. Small Business Saturday is an important opportunity to recognise the work small business do as the backbone of our local community.
“It is a great occasion to highlight the work that is going in to regenerate our local high streets with Camborne and Redruth. Since I was first elected, I always made clear that economic regeneration in Camborne, Redruth and Hayle was my number one priority”
