Driving success for our local businesses

I am passionate about supporting rural businesses, and I recently enjoyed a visit to Otterburn-based coach business Howard Snaith. I met with owner Howard Snaith, his mother Alison Snaith and Workshop Manager Gary Wilkinson, and during my visit I was shown around the depot, which is home to the business’ head office and fleet of forty coaches. Howard Snaith employs many local people, and it was great to be able to meet some of them as local businesses are at the heart of our community, and it is so important that we help them to thrive.
