SCHOOL children and students from across Pembrokeshire have come together to show their entrepreneurial skills and showcase their ideas for businesses.

This year’s Pembrokeshire Enterprise Fair took place on June 19, 20, and 21, at Haverfordwest’s Riverside Market with budding young business people from across the county taking part.

Stalls dotted the Riverside, and joining schools from Pembroke, Haverfordwest, Maenclochog and elsewhere were home-schooled children and students from Pembrokeshire College.

Pennar School pupils were selling popcorn unicorns, gift cards, headbands and other decorations.

“We have worked hard on these things in after school enterprise club,” said Jess, one of the pupils.

They were also offering face painting, and pupils on their break from other stalls visited to have glittery patterns brushed onto their faces.

Pembroke Dock Community School were selling a range of greetings cards, as well as decorated paper bags.

Johnston School pupils had a large stall near the Old Bridge, with decorated cakes, ceramic sculptures, and an activities book which they had all contributed to.

Haverfordwest VC School’s year 5 and 6 pupils were selling pop sockets (stick-on handles which makes taking selfies easier), as well as crafts and crepes.

“We have done really well these few days and it has been fantastic for pupil engagement and independent learning,” said teacher Lucy Schmidt.

Portfield School students were selling plants they had grown in their communal garden, while Ysgol Maenclochog’s year 5 and 6 class had made scented cushions and gift cards.

Pembrokeshire College students William and Belle Brooks, and Imogen Wright were showcasing their organic cosmetics business the Little Orange Shop, an enterprise set up around their A-Level and foundation year studies.

The Pembrokeshire Enterprise Fair has now been running for 11 years.

The fair is a part of PCC’s Futureworks initiative and aims to encourage young people into the county to consider the possibility of working for a Small or Medium Sized Enterprise in the future.
