A business lobbying group invited a Norwich MP to visit small firms in his constituency on Norfolk Day.
Clive Lewis, Norwich South MP, visited Norwich Acupuncture Rooms, The Lanes Clinic, and social enterprise Your Own Place on the tour, organised by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).
The firms spoke to Mr Lewis about their successes and challenges, the sense of community among local businesses, and the importance of co-operating on shared issues.
Other topics raised included the rising importance of mental health in the workplace and for the support available to businesses to be more clearly signposted.
FSB East Anglia area lead David Howell said: “We have 2,500 members across Norfolk and it is vital that we continue to make sure that they have their voices heard by our politicians, so we are grateful to Clive for joining us today.”
