Small Businesses Of The Week

minute read

As part of our #supportlocal campaign, every week JPIMedia’s local news titles are highlighting businesses from up and down the country that are responding to these uncertain times with creativity, generosity, humour and courage. 

Local businesses are a vital part of the communities they serve, and are used by you, your friends and neighbours and the wider public. So we are committed to supporting them not only with marketing solutions, but also by shining a spotlight on those that are doing themselves and their communities proud.
