Bridgwater offers strong community

The Somerset town of Bridgwater could appeal to all sorts of people because of its strong sense of community.

Around 30,000 people live in the area and there is a wide choice of property for sale in Bridgwater making it perfect for young families and equally retired people.

Day-to-day the town has plenty to offer with independent shops and pubs. It also has a busy arts centre, which offers various classes in all kinds of performance aspects, including acting, singing and dancing.

One of the main events of the year for Bridgwater is the annual Guy Fawkes Festival, which attracts more than 150,000 people from all over who are keen to enjoy the spectacular fireworks and bonfire.

There is also the Bridgwater Fair that is great for families looking for a fun day out. It is one of the biggest annual fairs held anywhere in the UK and is a great community event that must not be missed.

Bridgwater is also home to the East Bridgwater Sports Centre, which has badminton and tennis courts, an outdoor football pitch and a gym – prefect for residents who want to stay in shape.

For those who want to occasionally visit a larger city or need to travel for work, then there are good rail links from Bridgwater to Bristol - the nearest big city, which has a fab selection of shops, theatres, museums and other attractions.

However, Bridgwater has a number of industries that could provide job opportunities, especially within the plastics and textile fields.

In terms of education, the town has a wide choice of schools that will appeal to children and parents.

Crucially, Bridgwater was one of the first locations to be chosen as one of the government's key sites for the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme. This means schools in the area will be able to benefit from significant investment in the long-term and could provide a top-class education opportunity for youngsters.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801699032-ADNFCR
