Assembly Member Joyce Watson recently visited businesses in Cardigan to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing rural-based companies.
Mrs Watson, a member of the Assembly’s business and enterprise committee, met Shan Williams of 4CG, Cardigan’s innovative community social enterprise project. She later visited Jig-So children’s centre before popping in to craft shop, Crafters Cwtch.
“The visit afforded me a good chance to discuss a variety of issues which presently face small and rural businesses. Access to child care, access to finance and broadband services are especially important – I will be taking that message back to the Assembly,” Mrs Watson said.
Jig-So Project Development Director, Helen Jenkins said:
“Ms Watson has visited Jig-So before and her continuing interest in our work is a real boost to both staff and service users.”
Next Thursday (21 November), Jig-So, working in partnership with benefits charity Turn2Us, is running a free workshop in Aberystwyth to provide up-to-date information on welfare benefits and grant funding. For more information, contact Jig-So on 01239 615922 / [email protected]
