Ex-student launches Weston super Women film project
Weston super Mare is a town on the up, despite having a reputation as being deadbeat town, the town is full of life.
The women interviewed for ‘Weston super Women’ film documentaries. Come from various backgrounds and yet they all have one thing in common, they have brought inspiration and entrepreneurship to Weston-super-Mare in various ways of creativity and care.
