Under Construction, Bridgwater employment hub based off West Quay Close is celebrating after a fantastic first year. The partners help local people to develop and gain new skills to take advantage employment opportunities across Sedgemoor, and in particular Hinkley C. “It has been an absolutely amazing first year and we have achieved above and beyond what we have expected,” Mrs Derrick said. “It is not just Hinkley C work either, with the various hotels and developments going up in the town there are a wide range of opportunities available.” The centre is being funded by EDF Energy through a £45,000 investment over three years from the planning permission given to prepare the site at Hinkley Point C for construction. The money is being matched by partner contributions, either in kind or by direct funding.
