Vote for the Best Local Shop and Best Pub in Rushcliffe

Ruth Edwards has launched her annual Best Local Shop and Best Pub in Rushcliffe competitions to celebrate Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday is a grassroots campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to shop locally. Small businesses are a vital part our economy and community, that is why the Government has supported pubs by increasing “draught relief” from August, making the rate of duty on draught beer and cider up to 11 pence lower for pubs than the charge on cans or bottles bought in a supermarket.

The Government has also expanded the definition of a small business, from those businesses with under 250 employees to those with under 500. This has resulted in costs being cut for nearly 40,000 businesses as they become exempt from business regulations that apply to larger firms.
