Enterprise Hub for Bridgwater

Thursday 5th November, 2020

Bridgwater Baptist Church is planning a significant refurb of our building in the heart of Bridgwater.

As part of this plan we are going to create an ‘Enterprise Hub’. This will be home to eight affordable offices within the centre of the community for small businesses/start up enterprises.

We hope the offices will support start-up businesses who want to move out of their home office, charities looking to work in a more supportive environment and larger businesses looking to downsize due to changes in working practices in light of COVID encouraging home working.

This survey has been created to get people’s thoughts and ideas. Your response to this survey will help us find and secure relevant funding to make this project happen.
