Children’s business fair to showcase creative talents

Posted onPosted on 19th Jul

A Sutton businessman has been inspired to host a business fair for local young people to show off their creative skills.

Scott Marsh is hosting the Make Or Bake Children’s Business Fair on Saturday, 24th July, at Teversal Community Hub, Fackley Road, from 10am to 3pm.
Eighteen young entrepreneurs, aged under 18, will be hosting their own stalls, selling items they have made.
Look out for T-shirts, headwear, dog biscuits, keyrings, artworks, cookies and cakes.
Admission is free and items must be bought with cash. There will be refreshments available.
Scott, who co-owns home care business Your Home Care, decided to host the fair after his eight-year-old daughter, Priya, began making hair bows and selling them online as Bows Made by Priya.

“We tried to find a craft fair that would be suitable for her to stand at, but there was nothing locally so thought about arranging our own. I got some interest from other parents in the area, so we decided to go ahead.

“Quite a few children have spent the last 18 months getting creative whilst stuck at home and we have already seen some fantastic ideas from the stallholders already booked.

“It will be an annual event initially and will allow children to showcase their creations and sell them to the public in a safe environment. If it goes well, it could be quarterly thing.”
