Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, praised local Estate Agent Callaways on Church Road in Hove, after the firm won the regional heat of the Local Business Accelerators and is now backing their bid in the national part of the competition.
Local Business Accelerators is an initiative that is run by the regional press industry to boost local businesses. The competition is fronted by Dragons’ Den’s Deborah Meaden and supported by Business in You, a Government-backed initiative. For more information on the competition, click here. The Business in You website – www.businessinyou.bis.gov.uk – contains a range of practical information on setting up a business and directions to other sources of help.
Commenting, Mike said, “I am delighted by the success of Hove’s very own Callaways Estate Agent. Small businesses play a vital role in our economy and in local communities. I very much hope that the Local Business Accelerators competition and the accomplishments of Callaways, headed by Heather Hilder-Darling, will help to inspire other people to start their own business and to nurture existing companies.”
