Local students star at Christmas trade market

Young Enterprise students from Banbridge Academy, Banbridge High, St Patrick’s College, New Bridge Integrated College and Dromore High School will be kicking off the Christmas shopping season at The Outlet on Friday December 12 from 9am until 2pm.

The Trade Fair event will see more than twenty companies started by young people from across Banbridge, Armagh, Craigavon and further afield showcase their products and offer Christmas shoppers something different to traditional retailers.

Young Enterprise Chief Executive Carol Fitzsimons commented: “We would like to invite friends and relatives of these exciting young entrepreneurs to come along and support their local Young Enterprise companies.”
