What are some unique ways you have seen or experienced small businesses contributing to your community, and how can we further support these local entrepreneurs?

Starting and running a small business takes a lot of effort and flexibility. Owners face challenges like finding funding, managing finances, and competing with big companies. Despite these hurdles, they show amazing creativity and determination to succeed.

Small businesses also help build community spirit. They support local events, sponsor sports teams, and add unique character to neighbourhoods. 

Recognising their contributions is important. We should support them by using their businesses, spreading the word, and appreciating their hard work.

These entrepreneurs are our neighbours, friends, and family, making a positive impact.
