Swift work to see 'Spoons open soon
THE moment Wells landlords have feared but many pub-goers have been waiting for is here – the new Wetherspoon pub is set to open.
After a two-year planning battle that saw its initial bid refused, the pub chain, which is known for cheap food and drink, finally received permission in the spring.
Work was expected to get going over the summer but there wasn't a workman in sight. Now the company has revealed when the work will start – and bosses expect the pub to be open just a week later.
For full story, including the new pub's name and how many jobs will be created, see page 5.
