The Newbury Weekly News is getting behind Small Business Saturday on December 5 and we want you to help us recognise the independent retailers and traders that add so much to our community.
Tell us your favourite small business in West Berkshire and we will then compile a shortlist so that people can vote for their number one.
You can nominate your favourite by leaving a comment below or via the Newburytoday Facebook page. You can also email your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let us know the shop, restaurant, family firm, manufacturer, wholesaler, online trader or small business that makes your life special or goes above and beyond in terms of customer service.
We will present a certificate to the winning business and give it valuable editorial coverage.
So nominate your favourite small business now!
