A NEW centre at a Warwickshire Science Park which aims to help small and new business to grow has been officially opened.

The second phase of Stoneleigh Park’s Rural Innovation Centre was opened by Kenilworth and Southam MP Jeremy Wright.

The refurbishment of an existing adjacent building has created an additional 20 serviced offices and two meeting rooms.

The offices have been designed for businesses ranging in size from two to eight people and all have access to high-speed broadband.

Mr Wright said: “The Rural Innovation Centre was created to help small and start-up businesses flourish and this expansion is a testament to the number of successful, innovative businesses launched in this area in the past few years. ”

In total there are now 35 offices and 30 are currently let out to both new and expanding businesses and the centre expects to reach full occupancy soon.

Companies based at the centre can take advantage of other facilities at Stoneleigh Park, which include a children’s day nursery, gym, café and farm shop and hotel.
