A business is for life not just for Christmas, says FSB and Leighton Linslade Town Council

In partnership with Leighton Linslade Town Council, the Bedfordshire is offering a pop-up market and special business clinic to all small businesses in Leighton Linslade.

The event which will take place on Saturday 7 October and will provide our local small businesses the opportunity to showcase the fantastic range of goods and services that this town has to offer as we begin to look forward to Christmas.

Business experts will also be on hand to provide a clinic service to those small businesses who attend the pop-up market event. 
 
Ben Bodsworth from Leighton Linslade Town Council said; “We are looking forward to working on this event with FSB. This is a great opportunity for local residents and visitors to the area to find out about the businesses that there are in Leighton Linslade”.  
 
Ian Cording, chair of the Bedfordshire branch of FSB said: “In our market towns such as Leighton Buzzard it is the independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants that make it a visitor destination, not the faceless chain stores. But it is also important to give the businesses who don’t have a “shopfront” and may be based on the outskirts of the town, a chance to show their wares. This is why we are delighted to work in partnership with the town council on this special event.” 
 
Ian continued:  “Also small businesses are so busy running their operations that the chance to meet experts over a burning issue is a very useful bonus. This why we are putting on a business clinic at the same time.”
