A Morden recording studio will get a helping hand as part of an initiative to help small businesses.

Crown Lane Studio on Crown Lane is one of 100 companies helped by Smallbiz100, an initiative that tries to get consumers to 'shop local.'

John and Ruth Merriman launched the recording and rehearsal studio in 2007.

The pair decided to start the studio after their car was swept into a river. Following the accident they decided to take a chance with the business.
