Shaftesbury and District Chamber of Commerce were proud to support a Young Enterprise event which took place in Shaftesbury town hall on the 28th January. Four Young Enterprise companies set out their stall in a trade fair. The Young Enterprise Companies were: Blandford School “Just”, selling scented candles made using re-cycled glass containers, Shaftesbury School “Aurum”, selling lavender filled pouches, Gillingham School “Forget-me-Not Plants”, selling grow boxes, and Sherborne Girls’ School “Unify”, selling tie-dye T shirts.
The Chamber was extremely impressed with the professional approach the companies took and how much they had achieved since starting in September. Their prize was awarded to the team from Gillingham School. Mystery shopper Teresa Hatcher awarded Shaftesbury School a prize for the best shopping experience and Sherborne and Blandford received runner-up prizes.
