Bright future for bakery firm

A POPULAR Yatton bakery has been given permission to build bigger premises.
Pullins, which also has a shop in Clevedon, wants to modernise its business and believes the move will allow it to employ more staff in the future.
More office space and room for vehicles will be provided at the site off Horsecastle Road, although several farm buildings will need to be demolished before construction work begins.
Pullins hopes the move will also allow it to increase its workforce by a quarter, to 75 employees.
Cllr Tony Moulin, who represents the Yatton ward, said it was a good project for the area.
He said: “We want to keep jobs in Yatton and it is extra important when we have got a business like this that has been going for almost 90 years.”
“This is outside the village boundary and in the past cases have been made, with Smarts and other businesses, for growth in Yatton to be as near as possible (to the boundary).
