START-UP and existing businesses in Sedgemoor can access a new range of support services.

The North Somerset Enterprise Agency is offering business owners the chance to have access to a supervisor, take part in events and workshops and join an online business support community.

The service is fully-subsidised, and aims to help rural businesses improve their marketing and boost sales.

Angela Hicks, chief executive of North Somerset Enterprise Agency, said: “Starting and growing a business is always demanding, but rural businesses often face additional challenges such as a limited local customer base, difficulty in attracting great staff, technology shortfalls and encouraging people to their location amongst others.

“Hence we are delighted to be a partner within an exciting initiative that aims to create a sustainable rural economy.

Business owners can find more information on the agency on 01934 418118 and at
