Put back some business bounce

An award-winning entrepreneur from our locality is offering low cost, high value advice for rural businesses.

At a time when the much-vaunted recovery has yet to have much impact on the small businesses that typify the rural economy, really good, tailored advice can mean the difference between success and failure. Many of you receiving this email will have tenants, contacts and business partners who are trying to find a way to develop new products, gain access to new markets or reduce costs.

Selaine Saxby runs a successful business in the Wylye Valley near Warminster in Wiltshire. She is not the only business adviser out there, but she does have the experience of growing a business in a deeply rural area.

At Cranborne Chase AONB, we understand the vital role that small and micro-businesses play in the wider socio-economic context of our work. If you know of anyone who might be interested in the "Saxby Says" offer, then please forward the attached pdf or send them this link:

If you know of any other business advisers and sources of help specifically for small rural enterprises, then she would be really interested in hearing from you,
