THE new Container Business Hub at the Thusong Centre in Bridgton was officially opened on Thursday, 16 November. The centre aims to give small business owners the opportunity to run their businesses in a safe and structured environment.

Fourteen businesses have already started operating from their new containers.

The establishment of the Container units was a joint effort between the municipality’s Department of Planning and Development, the Provincial Department of Local Government and the Department of Economic Development and Tourism. (Deur Lindi Brill)
