It was very nearly standing room only at the Walnut Tree this morning. Bridgwater’s best business brains were there for an exchange of views which left me in absolutely no doubt – this town is at the cutting edge of commerce and attracting new ventures all the time. It is not surprising when you look at our nearest competitor – once Somerset’s county town, now a run-down place presided over by a woefully inefficient council. Taunton has become a sad also-ran in the quest for growth. Bridgwater has go-ahead “can-do” policies and a determination to make things work. Come and join us!
