A FAMILY business at Ruislip Park Stables today (26) welcomed Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner MP David Simmonds.

He was visiting the former Jacks Riding Stables in Fore Street, Pinner, to mark the final day of Family Business Week.

Mr Simmonds tweeted: “Great to meet the extended family running Jack’s/ Ruislip Park Stables #FamilyBizWeek, where many children get to experience a taste of the country in our lovely suburb.”

The UK’s five million family firms provide jobs for 14 million people, making them a bedrock of communities.

As part of the week’s activities, a series of visits by MPs to businesses was organised, culminating in Family Business Friday.
