A COUNCILLOR has hit back at Weston MP’s claims over a new jobs club.
John Penrose MP said the creation of a first jobs club in the town would help people get employed.
However Cllr Elfan Ap Rees, North Somerset Council’s deputy leader, has said the MP has made a mistake.
He said: “Of course we welcome another opportunity for people to get job-skilled and more employable, especially in view of the news of how many more people nationally are finding work, and are very pleased to see our local MP getting involved.
“However, this is not actually the first jobs club in the town, as he states, and that impression does need to be corrected.

Westonworks is based in St Andrew’s Parade and is open Monday to Thursday from 9am-4pm, providing advice on a range of issues including CV writing and interview skills.
