As we announced earlier this week, the old Iceland building has been formally unveiled as the home of ‘Town Square’ so we have a full video below as we take a look inside…

TheThe Wrexham Enterprise Hub will be delivered by Town Square Spaces for Business Wales and is aptly on the town’s Queen’s Square – with work taking place in the building over the last few months.

The building on Queens Square includes the former Iceland and Pebble units, is undergoing huge renovation and development in order for it to be ready to take in its first fledgling businesses towards the end of next month.

The new hub, which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government, was announced by Economy and Transport Secretary Ken Skates last year, and aims support new businesses and create hundreds of jobs in its first two years. The two-year pilot will also focus on securing at least £1m of private investment for its members as well as building a community of entrepreneurs that will boost the local economy.



Yesterday we went for a look inside at the progress with Gareth Jones, the founder of Town Square and his doppelganger Carl Tuner who is the founding member of the Town Square team and community manager.

You can see our video below…
