EDF's £2m gift to Bridgwater College

First published in Bridgwater Area News

EDF Energy has presented Bridgwater College with £2million this week, to help students and local people gain new skills, training and jobs for Hinkley Point C.

The money is part of a funding package agreed with Sedgemoor District Council, West Somerset Council and Somerset County Council, to allow EDF Energy to begin site preparation work at Hinkley C.

Most of the money – £1.5 million – will go towards the college’s new Construction Skills Centre, while the rest is being spent on the college’s Energy Skills Centre.

Andy Berry, Bridgwater College’s vice principal, said: “We’re delighted with the investment from EDF Energy and proud of our national reputation for delivery of high quality training for employers.”

I hope the money has gone through to Bridgwater College as I have just read an article in the Guardian that suggests EDF are having second thoughts about Hinkley C.
Incidentally has anyone heard of Tesco applying for planning permission yet?

I saw on the news a few weeks back that Tesco were putting a hold on new build projects for 3 years I think and only opening Express stores.
