Alan Robins: Support independent businesses on Small Business Saturday

I was born in Portslade over 50 years ago and grew up surrounded by a range of small independent shops. On nearby North Street, there was Goble’s greengrocers, Rio’s café, Mrs Masters’s wool shop, Mary Whittaker’s sweet shop and Snowie’s – where my mum would send me to buy a block of ice cream that Mr Snow would wrap in a sheet of old newspaper – and where we took our jelly to set in his fridge as we didn’t have a fridge at home. This all happened a long time ago but if I close my eyes I can still see Ms Whittaker standing proudly behind, what seemed like at the time, her very high , sweet-laden counter.
