YOUNG STARS will be shining tomorrow when budding business minds pitch their products to the public at Webbs Garden Centre in Wychbold.
Eleven Young Enterprise (YE) companies representing schools throughout Redditch, Bromsgrove and Wyre Forest will be setting up their pitches in the trade fair from 10am to 4pm.
YE is the UK’s largest enterprise education charity and gives participants the chance form their own business then develop and market a service or product.
Students from Bromsgrove School, North Bromsgrove High, South Bromsgrove High, Haybridge High and Hagley High will be attending alongside other educational establishments from Redditch and KIdderminster.
The new businesses will be selling a wide variety of products from home decorations and gifts to hoodies, bags, lampshades and pet accessories.
Melanie Hawkett, Director of Source and Effect and Chair for YE North Worcestershire said: “It is so important for the YE students to really test their concepts, ideas and products at the Webbs Fair.”
She added there was no better opportunity for them to gain an understanding of a ‘real customer environment’ and get feedback on their products.
Webbs chairman, Ed Webb, added he was really looking forward to meeting the YE teams and seeing their products.
“As a company Webbs is committed to supporting worthwhile local projects and are very happy to encourage these business entrepreneurs in the world of retail.”
