Candle products win Young Enterprise Trade Fair


A hotly-contested Young Enterprise Trade Fair was won by a team who impressed with their candles.

The Royal Windsor Shopping Centre hosted the event on Saturday.

Taking part from Slough were three teams from Herschel Grammar, two from Slough Grammar, and one each from Langley Academy and St Bernard's.

Maidenhead's entries were from Newlands Girls', Furze Platt and Claires Court, with Windsor Boys' and Brigidine from Windsor.

Judges were rotarian David Shaw, the shopping centre manager Sue Watts and Royal Borough Mayor, Cllr Colin Rayner.

They picked Brigidine School's Fiamma team as the winner, with Herschel Grammar's Kids Inc in second and Blueprint from Newlands Girls' in third.

Mike Miller, chairman of Young Enterprise for Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead, said: "It was a very close contest because the majority of teams were thought to be very good."

He said the overall prize was 'still up for grabs' in the Area Final in March.

Teams start a business from scratch, setting up a board and choosing a product. They were judged on seven criteria including the stand itself, product quality and knowledge and customer service.

Brigidine's products included cup-a-candle using teacups purchased from charity shops, tinkered candles and tea lights.
