SOMERSET County Council is hosting a free breakfast meeting to help manufacturing businesses work closer together.

The aim is to bring businesses together to network, and hear from local government representatives and other members of the manufacturing community about why partnerships are so powerful.

Speakers include Chris Garcia, of the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership, and Rupert Cox, of Somerset Chamber of Commerce.

All are welcome at the Canalside, Bridgwater, on Friday, September 5, from 8.15am to 10.15am.
