New co-working space at Yeovil Innovation Centre to provide a relaxed and creative environment

Yeovil's newest co-working space 'The Hive' is opening its doors at the Yeovil Innovation Centre on Monday 12 December, providing a relaxed and creative environment for Yeovil's thriving business community.

The Hive is a highly flexible workspace; perfect for home-based and mobile workers, business start-ups and entrepreneurs.

Users of The Hive will have the option of either hot-desking or taking a permanent desk and will have access to superfast broadband, free parking, free business advice and opportunities to network with like-minded businesses.

The name and branding of the new space was designed by Dani Millward, a graphic design student from Yeovil College. South Somerset District Council approached the College and offered students the chance of creating a new name and logo for the co-working space. The winning design was chosen by officers from the District Council and the final vote rested with South Somerset District Council's Economic Development Portfolio Holder, Councillor Jo Roundell Greene.

Speaking about The Hive's winning name and logo, Councillor Jo Roundell Greene, said, "I was really impressed with the wonderful designs that the students created. This competition gave them the opportunity to work on a real-life project and Dani's designs will be used in all future branding".

The Hive offers practical services to help businesses grow, access new customers, reduce overheads and thrive for years to come. The emphasis has been on providing high quality space, with affordable and flexible charges.
