Over the last few weeks, I have visited each Small Business winner from my annual Small Business competition. It was so great to go and have a chat with the different winners and present them with their certificate.
Small businesses are the backbone of our community and it made me expremely glad to see how much love and support each one of our local businesses received.
The winners are.....
St Raphaels for Best Local Charity Shop
Moo and Bean Cafe for Best Local Coffee Shop
Mark Fisher for Best Local DIY/ Furniture Shop
Wrythe Green Post Office for Best Local Convenience/ Corner Shop

Having a thriving local economy is a key part of my plan for Carshalton and Wallington. I promised to stand by local businesses in our area when I was elected and I continue to lobby Ministers on your behalf and help businesses with the issues they come accross with Sutton Council or Governmental Departments.
