80 new jobs to be created at events venue near Burnham-On-Sea

A multi-million pound expansion project at an events venue near Burnham-On-Sea looks set to create 80 new jobs.

Rookery Manor has this week unveiled plans for a new health centre, plus other facilities at its centre near Rooksbridge.

The new facilities will include six saunas and steam rooms, a small swimming pool, hydro pools and treatment rooms.

There are also plans to create an extra 46 hotel bedrooms by converting Rookery Manor House into accommodation, as well as changing three agricultural buildings into offices, a salon and garages.

Rookery Manor, pictured above, currently employs 80 full-time and 200 part-time staff and says it hopes to double its full-time workforce.

If planning permission is granted by Sedgemoor District Council, construction could begin in October and be completed in early 2010.
