BRIDGWATER Mayor Leigh Redman has officially opened the The Bed Shop on Taunton Road – on its first birthday.

The shop opened a year ago but could not hold an official opening because of  the coronavirus pandemic.

Cllr Leigh Redman said: “I was so pleased to have been asked to cut the ribbon on this business. We missed the official opening due to Covid, so to celebrate the first birthday was a great idea.

“I love being able to remind everyone that Bridgwater is open for business, the town council want to do everything they can to support traders and business in our town.”
