How much should my hourly rate be?

I had a meeting with the manager of a small graphic designer company in my local town at the weekend. I have some marketing and PR experience in my previous role as a marketing assistant and he was interested in me doing some similar work for him on a freelance basis. He asked to me to think about what my hourly rate would be, to begin with it will just be for a few hours on a Saturday. So realistically what should I say? It’s a small business but it’s ticking over well considering the recession and I am in the South West.

I’ve been advised by my family and friends to say about £10 or £12 an hour and I’m not sure if I’m under-selling myself or over-selling!

Any advice would be appreciated.
