Dawn visits Pop-Up Furniture Factory

Dawn Primarolo, Labour MP for Bristol South, has visited the new Eagle House Pop-Up Furniture Factory on Newquay Road in Knowle West.

During her visit Dawn saw state-of the-art equipment being used to create furniture for the new Filwood Green Business Park and was also shown plans to ‘upcycle’ existing office furniture.  Dawn learned about how the Furniture Factory project offers training and employment opportunities for local residents as well as providing workshops where the community can get involved and learn new skills.   


Speaking after her visit Dawn said:

“This is a very exciting project – it was really interesting to see furniture and other items being designed and manufactured right in the heart of Knowle West.  This programme has huge potential and I wish the team every success taking it forward.”
