Key to lo­cal econ­omy is small busi­nesses

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Lo­cal MSP James Kelly has said that small busi­nesses are key to the lo­cal economies of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang.

Mr Kelly vis­ited lo­cal em­ploy­ers in his con­stituency as part of Small Busi­ness Satur­day last week­end, in­clud­ing James Burns Hair De­sign.

The MSP and Mr Burns sat down and chat­ted about is­sues fac­ing the con­stituency - in­clud­ing prob­lems with park­ing in the Burn­side area.

Mr Kelly said:“Small Busi­ness Satur­day is all about com­pa­nies like James Burns Hair De­sign. I’ve had a really pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ship with Mr Burns for a num­ber of years and I know the con­tri­bu­tion he and other lo­cal busi­nesses make to the Ruther­glen econ­omy.

“We’ve got a great va­ri­ety of small busi­nesses in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang and it’s firms like James Burns’s which make our high streets spe­cial.

“It is im­por­tant as politi­cians to make sure we are lis­ten­ing to small busi­ness own­ers like Mr Burns - so that we can take the is­sues they are fac­ing straight to the floor of the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment.”

James Burns said:“It was great to have James along reaf­firm­ing his sup­port for small busi­nesses here in Burn­side. It is good to be able to raise con­cerns with him as our MSP - and it’s im­por­tant he knows the chal­lenges we face as lo­cal busi­ness own­ers.”
