Weston-based business development centre The Hive is celebrating after welcoming four new tenants to its offices.

Two-thirds of the centre’s space is now taken up, with tenants including financial advisors, a law firm membership group, a website designer and a support service for people suffering with mental health issues and disabilities.

The 25 businesses now housed at the North Somerset centre – or using it as their base address – are supplying a total of 50 jobs to the area’s economy.

Symphony Legal, which has been offering legal and business advice for more than 20 years, is among the latest to be welcomed in to the office space.

Operations director Louise Gash said: “Having been here for some weeks now The Hive has exceeded our expectations.

“We originally thought that we would maybe move here for the short term before finding a more permanent base. Our experience so far, however, has led us to realise that we probably won’t need, or want, to move.”

Business development manager Rob Hicks said: “When we opened The Hive we were delivering a new concept in office space, meeting space and business advice to North Somerset.
