Entrepreneurs are being offered the chance to rent a desk and a range of support services for their fledgling firm at a new business centre.

The Business Garage has been launched at Cherry Barns in Harwell with start-up companies being offered a range of services including human resources, public relations and administrative support as well as a workspace.

Managing director Joanne Bunting said: "Running a small business can be a lonely existence, but we offer a motivating, entrepreneurial environment backed up with experts on hand who you can turn to for whatever support your business needs.”

A range of plans are available starting at just £250 + VAT a month for a basic package with desk, phone, Internet and office amenities. A bespoke package for any self-employed professional or small business can be created accordingly.
