A little update from Charline 07-12-2013.
I was honoured to get an invitation to the reception with all the other 100 small business members. My day started in Brixton where I joined the Small business tour bus, where Shadow Business Secretary Chukka Umunna was present to support small business' and to promote smalll business'. After an obligatory photo we then travelled on to the reception at 11 Downing street, where I met with many of the independent businesses over tea and sandwiches. It was terrific to see so many independent local businesses getting involved and so many consumers rediscovering the British high street. It was really exciting to be part of the day – and I got to meet George Osborne, Chancellor of the Exchequer. The reception at 11 Downing Street was a very friendly affair with Matthew Hancock MP Minister for Skills and Enterprise and Sajid Jarvid, Financial Secretary to the Treasury both speaking of their personal experiences of family small businesses. After an hour of enthusiastic networking it was home for a tall drink and to put my feet up.
