Bridgwater booms – Taunton slumps

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!
