Shoppers showed their support for small businesses in Dacorum on one of the busiest retail days of the year.
The mall at the Riverside Shopping Centre in Hemel Hempstead was lined with stalls in honour of the national Small Business Saturday on the first weekend in December.
Among the stands were winners of Dacorum’s Den Business Award 2013, Green Light Mediation.
The family mediation company says divorce does not have to cost thousands, and spent the day raising awareness of their services.
Alternative gift company The Rockin Lockin, which sells unusual rock and biker gifts, including Christmas crackers, took part, too.
Berkhamsted-based sweet shop company Tuck Tuck manned a stall laden with unique gift ideas that can be sent through the post.
