THE FARNHAM Children’s Business Fair will return to the Farnham Maltings on Saturday, April 2, coinciding with the Maltings’ monthly market from 9am to 4pm.
Coming after the breakout success of December’s first ever Farnham Children’s Business Fair, the event will again offer a chance for shoppers to meet the next, great entrepreneurs, aged seven to 17, as they launch their businesses at the Maltings’ market.
And in a further boost to the area’s next generation of entrepreneurs, Waverley Borough Council has provided a grant to help fund three young people’s participation in the Farnham and Guildford Children’s Business Fairs and also to provide for extra promotion of the fairs.
Councillor Liz Townsend, Waverley’s portfolio holder for planning and economic development, said: “As our town centres recover from the impact of Covid and respond to changes in shopping habits, it’s vital that we provide opportunities for our future young businesspeople to get hands-on experience.
“Fairs and markets are also excellent ways of encouraging people into our town centres, spending money locally and rediscovering the enjoyment of face-to-face shopping.
“We want to play our part in encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs in Waverley, particularly by enabling young people to participate in the fair who might not otherwise have had the resources to do so.”
To take part in the fairs, young people need to develop a business idea, consider how to make a profit and plan their marketing. They will get experience of interacting with customers and the thrill of making a sale.
