Market gives chance to teenagers
Teenage entrepreneurs are being offered a free stall at a Christmas produce and craft market in December.
The city council is working with local businesswoman Nicola Casey to give those aged 13 to 19 the chance to sell a product or service, with the aim of turning a passion or hobby into a business opportunity.
Applications for stalls at the Herne Bay market in Wimereux Square on Sunday, December 10, are now being invited.
It is open to anyone with a skill or talent, from cake-making, crafts, painting or drawing, through to singing or dancing on stage in front of the crowd.
Stalls are free but teenagers must be accompanied by an adult on the day. A full support programme and a free mentoring session before the event will also be provided.
The chairman of the council’s regeneration and property committee, Cllr Ben Fitter-harding, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for young people to showcase their talent, get some help with running a business and test their ideas.”
Anyone interested should email natalia.sukhram@canterbury. gov.uk, outlin ing their proposal before Thursday, November 16.
The Herne Bay produce and craft market, set up as part of the council’s Buy in the Bay initiative, takes place on the second Sunday of every month between 10am and 2pm.
The next market will be on November 12.
