“When fully developed, the Red Brick Building Centre will be a dynamic enterprise and community hub that responds to local needs and opportunities”
On 24th May, 22 people from 20 organisations attended our Somerset Towns Forum event at the Red Brick Building Centre, Glastonbury. The first part was a tour of the building, followed by a presentation and discussion on Somerset’s Portas Pilot bids.
STF members and guests were rewarded with a sunny afternoon to hear about progress in Minehead.
Our event started at the Minehead Eye, with a brief tour of the facility, led by Naomi.
This event showcased 3 supermarket developments in Somerset towns and highlighted the key issues.

Our Funding Forum gave some useful insights into successful funding applications and types of funding.
Roger Powell from Martock’s M3 Community Partnership began by explaining the origins of the Market House project; renovating a historic building and adding new facilities such as a community office.
On a beautiful day, 20 delegates from as far afield as Frome and Ivybridge in Devon travelled to Wellington to hear about a range of promotional schemes and events that support local businesses, that could be replicated in other market towns. We had 5 representatives of Chambers, and welcomed new SMTF members Somerton Town Council.
