Small Business Saturday logoThis year Small Business Saturday will take place on Saturday 6th December. Small businesses are the lifeblood of our local economy. In Cardiff Central we have many small business that form the hub of communities across the city; from our famous arcades in the city centre, to Albany, Wellfield and City Road, Crwys Road and Clifton Street to name a few.

 

Small Business Saturday exists to support, inspire and promote small businesses, whether they are long established or recent. It's a grassroots campaign that encourages us to shop locally and support small businesses in our local community. The first Small Business Saturday was in 2013 and was a huge success driving more trade to small businesses (nearly £500m). Hundreds of events across the UK took place. It was the biggest celebration of small business the UK has ever seen.
Small Business Saturday is back this year on Saturday 6th December.  It enables us to put centre stage the great work that small independent businesses do in providing local jobs. Our local entrepreneurs need our support. I'll be backing the campaign doing my shopping locally and I hope you will too.

Gas cooker ringsThis week is Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week. It is important to remember that badly fitted or poorly serviced gas appliances are very dangerous, and can kill you if not repaired.

If you are living in a rented property, make sure your landlord has had the gas checked in your property in the last year. There should be a sticker on your boiler to confirm that. If not, demand to see the gas safety record. 

The landlord's buildings insurance won't be valid unless a Gas Safe registered engineer has given your appliances the OK in the last 12 months. 

If you have any problems, or need support with any housing or landlord problems, please get in touch with me or Jenny Rathbone, Assembly Member:

Do Democracy LogoParliament week 2014 starts today and this year the theme is democracy.

Young people across the UK are being invited to join in with a social media campaign running all week. You can join in by posting on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #DoDemocracy and share what you're doing to make a change, or the change you want to see.

The most popular issues will be shared with parliament.

Alongside this there are events running during the week online and around the UK. You can see the full listings here.

Politics affects everyone and everything we all care about - now and in the future, and that's what's being debated now. I'm passionate about democracy because it's what ensures all our voices are heard.

If you have an idea about how we can build a better future for people in Cardiff Central and across the UK, get in touch and let me know. If I'm elected as your MP on May 7th 2015 I will work hard every day to represent your voice in Westminster and make sure we implement the changes we need for a better future.

This parliament week, I'll be sharing some of my ideas for the future but I'd love to know what yours are. Tweet @JoStevensLabour with the hashtag #DoDemocracy and let me know what you think.
