Aspiring business owners took advantage of free drop-in sessions during last week’s Small Business Saturday (5 December).

Advisors from the accredited and award-winning Rotherham Investment Development Office (RiDO) were on hand to promote their free start-up training and the various business support services they offer.

Cllr Chris Read, Leader of Rotherham Council, dropped in on the team and met with Ryan and Lisa Braidley who used the service over the weekend. Cllr Read said, "The RiDO team have a wealth of experience and expertise to help either existing businesses expand and develop or to assist new businesses at the very early start-up stages.

"There are lots of established companies in Rotherham who have worked with RiDO and continue to use their services. I’d encourage anyone considering setting up a business in the town to contact one of the Business Advisors and see what help and advice they can offer."
