Balloon company struggling with inflation

A Suffolk balloon business says inflation is making it hard to stay afloat.

Balloon Knot Enterprises insists today’s inflation rise to 6.2% is devastating.

Managing Director Lorraine Fisher, 34, explained: “Inflation hits balloon businesses hard and we are holding on by a string.

“Balloon Knot Enterprises was doing very well and had plans to float.

“But now our dreams have burst.”
