Young entrepreneurs from schools across the local area set up their stalls at the ‘Young Enterprise Trade Fair’ hosted by Rushmere shopping centre, Craigavon.

Visiting the stalls local Ulster Unionist Assembly Candidate Jo-Anne Dobson said: “It was a real treat to once again join the team at Young Enterprise and walk around the stands to see first-hand the dedication which the students have put into designing and presenting their products.

“They have all been working incredibly hard creating their companies, organising their marketing and also arranging their colourful and attractive stands – and it really showed.

“All the pupils involved are richly deserving of praise, but I would like to single out the teams from Banbridge Academy – especially Skrabbled and Hush Speakers – for all their hard work in bring their ideas from concept to reality.

“This trade fair is a perfect way to fuel young talent, helping pupils to learn the values of entrepreneurship and enterprise. This is a fantastic event.”
