Here’s just a taster of some of the events running in the Cambridge area in December. Due to the festive period, events are rather thin on the ground – if you have any you wish to add please do so in the comments section below,
Small Business Saturday – Nationwide Event
Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-political, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities. The day itself takes place on the first shopping Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses. In 2014 Small Business Saturday UK will take place on Saturday December 6th.
