A BRAND new work hub officially launched in Barnstaple on Thursday with networking, training seminars and a chance to look around the facilities.

The aim of the work hub, which is based in Pottington, is to provide affordable office space and hot desks for people who work from home.

Amelia and Bruce Isaac, who run The Design Space, were very pleased with the launch, which was made possible with funding from Devon County Council.

Amelia, work hub manager, said: “I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved with setting up Barnstaple work hub, working with Devon County Council.

“It’s fantastic to see that the space is already nearly full and our tenants love it.”

Councillor Andrew Leadbetter, cabinet member for economy and enterprise, attended the opening and said: “I am extremely impressed by the work and enthusiasm of the promoter and our partner, Amelia Isaac.

“I’m very pleased to be supporting the new design space in Barnstaple and sure this facility will do much to help businesses and support growth in North Devon.”
