SHOP­PERS flocked to Lit­tle Chal­font at the week­end to sup­port the lo­cal busi­nesses as part of a na­tional cam­paign.

Shops in Lit­tle Chal­font had a very suc­cess­ful Small Busi­ness Satur­day with sev­eral of them hav­ing their best ever sales.

Man­ager of Deb­o­rah's Beauty Bou­tique Jess said: “This year is even bet­ter than the last! Lots of peo­ple through the door and lots of Christ­mas spirit all round.”

Shahin's In­dian Restau­rant said: “We more than dou­bled the busi­ness over last year.”

Owner of The Craft Beer Shop Mick French said: “This was our first Small Busi­ness Satur­day and it's gen­er­ated lots of ex­cite­ment.”

Tom Robertson of Robertson Butch­ers said: “We were de­lighted with our busi­ness but there again we were sell­ing a prod­uct which was ex­cep­tional value.”

Peter Burgess from the Lit­tle Chal­font Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion, who co­or­di­nated the event, said: “This was the third year that we have held this and it im­proves ev­ery year. Over 30 of Lit­tle Chal­font's shops and busi­nesses took part. Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cil really helped to pro­mote the event with the pro­duc­tion of ban­ners and posters. In ad­di­tion, thanks to vol­un­teers, we were able to dis­trib­ute de­tails of the shops' of­fers to ev­ery house in the parish – about 3,000 house­holds. The mes­sage of ‘Shop Lo­cal' is really be­gin­ning to get through.”
