Vacant space at GWR Bridgwater Station has been transformed into a new multi-use community room by Severnside Community Rail Partnership. In collaboration with GWR Community Fund, HPC Community Fund managed by Somerset Community Foundation, Community Rail Network and the Railway Heritage Trust, grant monies have been raised to refurbish the space which comprises an adaptable open plan meeting room for up to x10 persons, with a small kitchen and WC.

The new room will be offered to the community for meetings and workshops and is part of Severnside CRP’s vision to enhance Bridgwater Station’s position as a gateway to the vibrant and growing town.

Severnside CRP’s David Northey commented “The transformation of a once derelict set of rooms will
hopefully be the beginning of a regeneration at the station and place the station as a significant gateway to the town of Bridgwater”

Amey TPT’s David Corp commented “We have been very pleased to support the Community Rooms project. We’re marketing vacant café premises at Bridgwater Station which we hope will present the next opportunity to further regenerate this once thriving station”
