Saturday’s event is being organised and promoted by Brand New Forest together with local businesses Bartley Marketing/, Thebestof the New Forest, and Totally Locally Lymington, all of which in their slightly different ways help to promote and champion local business and encourage us to spend locally.  

There are some really great one day special offers available throughout the town from the Quay to St Thomas Street, so although the hub of activity is around Angel and Earley Courtyards, everybody is recommended to take a stroll right through town next Saturday.  It’s a great opportunity to venture inside some shops for the first time.   All the businesses with offers will be displaying Small Business Saturday posters, so they should be easy to spot. Special One Day Offers


Lymington Business "Expo"


There will be an informal exhibition throughout the day, in the Lymington Community Centre Fuller McLellan Hall.  This will include the plans for the new Centre, and a number of local businesses who will be displaying their products and services to you.  Please do take a walk around the Hall and have a chat with them!

Small Business Saturday also sees the launch of Lymington as Brand New Forest 2015 Town of the Year, heralding the start of what promises to be a busy year in Lymington for local business - and a great year for local shoppers.  The new 2015 Brand New Forest Cards normally priced £5 will be on sale on Small Business Saturday one day only, “buy one get one free”.  These enable local consumers to benefit from long term discounts and special offers when they shop locally in a growing number of participating shops, restaurants and activities.
