More than 60 businessmen and women from Mid-Norfolk attended a small-business summit.
The sell-out event was organised by the Norfolk Way campaign to highlight the plight of small businesses in the current financial crisis.
Shadow small-business minister Mark Prisk addressed the meeting in Swanton Morley on Thursday.
George Freeman, founder of the campaign, and prospective parliamentary candidate for the new Mid Norfolk Constituency at the next election, said: 'While irresponsible bankers in London are bailed out with billions, local small businesses are being hit hard by collapsing consumer spending and a refusal by banks to lend.
