THE Huntingdonshire Business Fair was the busiest yet with more than 450 visitors.
More than 100 stall holders showcased their companies at the event on Thursday (April 18) at Wood Green Animal Shelter which was run by the Huntingdonshire Federation of Small Businesses and Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce and supported by Borney UK and Purple Haze.
Huntingdon MP Jonathan Djanogly opened the fair at the Godmanchester venue with Malcolm Lyons, chairman of the Huntingdon FSB, John Bridge, CEO of the Cambridgeshire Chambers, and Councillor Jason Ablewhite, executive leader of Huntingdonshire District Council.
Mr Djanogly said: “Here there are a significant number of businesses that are going to be growing in the next few years.
“Huntingdonshire is a great place to be for smaller businesses because we have a local government that believes in small businesses.”
Cllr Ablewhite added: “In Huntingdonshire we have great entrepreneurial spirit and is proven to be a great place to start businesses. Last year had more businesses start up in our district than in Peterborough, which has double our population.”
