Regional Finalist Status for Young Enterprise Team
Our Young Enterprise team this year goes by the name of Durable, Organic, Green, or D.O.G. for short. They have developed a business from scratch making and selling dog leads and accessories which are made from hemp. Earlier this week they travelled to Norwich to compete in the Norfolk/Suffolk showcase and for a chance to go through to the regional final later this year. After a long drive the team was in good spirits and happily set to erecting their trade stand beautifully designed by Lily. Meanwhile the presentation team prepared for their big moment on stage. Oli, Manging Director, led the presentation with a rousing call to arms to fight the influx of plastic leads and buy British hemp. The presentation was slick, and amused the audience with one or two funny lines alongside its very professional main script. Following the trade stand interview the field was whittled down to six teams who promptly performed their presentations again. The Judges took little time to decide the top four to go through to the regional final. However they kept us on tenterhooks right till the end as Woodbridge was the last to be told they had a place in the regional final on 5th June in Cambridge. The team returned to Suffolk and celebrated an excellent win over a little light repast.
