Owner Beth Szopa said: “Unit 17 has traditionally been used for all things ‘cars’ related however, I have recently took over the unit and felt that there was a need to rent out flexible space for businesses in and around Melton.

“I understand that small businesses don’t always want to take on long leases with added overheads, so I feel that Unit17 offers the perfect solution with half day, full day and evening rental slots for prices starting from as little as £40.

“The space can be used for every thing from photography studio space, parties, meetings, workshops, networking events, training days, team building days or fitness studio space.”
