Talented youngsters from in and around the Gainsborough area impressed local companies as they took part in a special business event at Marshall’s Yard. More than a dozen local young enterprise companies participated in a one-off market at Marshall’s Yard shopping centre in Gainsborough.

Schools across Lincolnshire, which form part of the Young Enterprise programme, showcased their business acumen to a panel of judges, which included the developer of Marshall’s Yard, Mark Dransfield.

The winning company was then awarded its very own Marshall’s Yard Young Enterprise Award for how the team performed in the day. Mark Dransfield said: “The standard shown by the students at this event was excellent. Some of the products on sale were extremely innovative.” He continued: “The students had really thought about the customer service, marketing and the whole package so we were very impressed.”
