Haringey Liberal Democrats standing up for local businesses this Christmas

Lynne Featherstone and Cllr Robert Gorrie with trader LucyTo see how they can best support local businesses through the difficult financial times and in the run-up to Christmas, Local Liberal Democrats have today launched a business survey to go out to businesses across Haringey.
The business survey, part of the ‘be local’ campaign, intended to encourage volunteering and support for local shops, was today launched by Lynne Featherstone MP and Councillor Robert Gorrie on Hornsey High Street. The Liberal Democrats are also writing to local residents in December to encourage them to support their local shops this Christmas.
Lynne Featherstone MP comments:
“The tough economic climate has been hard on our local businesses, and as the run-up to Christmas is so important for local shop, we’re today launching a survey to hear what matters to traders.
“We want to know about the top issues to tackle, and will be speaking to businesses up and down the borough in the coming month.”
Liberal Democrat Finance Spokesperson Cllr Robert Gorrie adds:
“There are many spectacular businesses in our community. They are the life-blood of our local town centres and local economy.
“We want to know what more can be done to encourage people to use our High Street and ‘be local’ this winter, and that’s why we are also writing to residents, encouraging them to do their Christmas shopping locally this year.”
