In case you haven’t heard, it’s Small Business Saturday in the UK on 3rd December. Find out what that means, follow the social media campaign and read how to get involved on the Small Business Saturday website.
In summary it’s a campaign to support small businesses in the UK and takes place on the first Saturday of December, so we’re all for it. Since we started running Bough to Beauty Bespoke we’ve received invaluable support and encouragement from other small businesses.
We love hearing inspirational stories about business owners following their dreams and working hard to create wonderful successful businesses that provide great products and services for us all to enjoy. Supporting small business is important to us and we’d like to take this occasion to give a shout out to some of our friends who do wonderful work and put big smiles on lots of faces, so here goes…

While we’re thinking about people who have helped us out and inspired us, we’d like to give a shout out to our good friend Amy who runs events at Strongrooms.

In January it’s Independent Venue Week and with so many of our favourite venues being closed we’d like to show our support to the cause and to independent venues that keep on keeping on and providing spaces for us to experience great music and have fun.

Join Our Newsletter To Discover Simple Steps To Make Your Business More Sustainable
Being a green business will help the environment and could improve your company’s chances of success. Sustainable business is about meeting three key requirements; being environmentally friendly, considerate towards society (especially those affected by your business), and profitable so the business can survive, thrive and act responsibly whilst making a positive impact.
It isn’t about writing a policy and filing it away to gather dust, it’s about taking action. A sustainable business should have these values ingrained in their business strategy and daily decision making. Do you run a sustainable business?
At Bough to Beauty Bespoke, we want to help you by sharing innovative solutions that tackle environmental challenges facing businesses today. We’ve lined up some inspiring interviews with successful sustainable businesses that are making a positive impact.
We’ll be sharing these on our blog, along with simple steps to make your business more sustainable. If you’d like to hear more sign up to our newsletter and stay tuned!
Thanks for reading!
