Andrea with Gordon Gaze at On Target to celebrate Small Business Saturday
Ahead of the fifth UK Small Business Saturday which took place on December 2nd 2017, the Rt Hon. Andrea Leadsom MP visited On Target, a Northampton-based indoor air rifle range and shop, to meet the owner Gordon Gaze and hear about his journey from hobbyist to entrepreneur and on to winner of the 2017 Northamptonshire Best New Business Award.
Commenting on the visit, Andrea said:
“It was a great pleasure to visit On Target in Brackmills to congratulate Gordon in person on the award and to hear at first-hand what Government can do to support them and the challenges they face further. Gordon’s story is an excellent example to anyone thinking of going into business themselves. Small businesses in particular are the life-blood of our communities and our economy, and I am delighted to continue to champion them.
The Government recently launched its Industrial Strategy, setting out its determination to grow our economy, pay for our essential services, and provide jobs for the future. Small businesses are at the heart of this.”
