A bright fishy future

oysterAn oyster fishery has been reopened by a group of residents to help cut youth unemployment in West Somerset.

Porlock Futures, a community food project based in Porlock, hopes to bring more tourism to the once famous oyster harbour and create a needed boost to the local economy.

The Chairman of Porlock Parish Council has said “We originally  wanted to find something which could generate employment and help the local economy, but which also fitted with the environment and the heritage”.
