Brent Council has just released details of our own new £2.5 million ‘Back to Business’ grants scheme for businesses which have missed out on previous Government grants. For details, visit www.brent.gov.uk/businessgrants. On Saturday 19 June, we went out and about in Sudbury alongside Cllr Muhammed Butt, Barry Gardiner MP and Cllr Shama Tatler to promote the new scheme. We also used the opportunity to improve the planters in Sudbury town, and ask local firms new and old how we can help them survive and thrive.
On Saturday, Sudbury’s Labour Councillors handed Sudbury Cafe a well-deserved Brent Council award for being shortlisted for “best place to eat and drink” in Brent Council’s Small Business Saturday competition.
