SMALL businesses could benefit from a pot of money to create professional work spaces to be used as an office when needed.

The Heart of the South West Rural Growth Network has given Somerset County Council £75,000 to set up three work hubs in rural towns and villages.

Work hubs provide a flexible office space where business people can network and collaborate.

Councillor David Hall, cabinet member for business, said: “Work hubs are the antidote to isolated home working and a great way for entrepreneurs to get the business buzz by sharing facilities and ideas.

“I hope lots of organisations will come forward as this is a great opportunity for them to set up a hub in their own local community.

And public, private, charity or social enterprise organisation can register for a share of the money and should call 01823 359217 for more information.
