Congratulations to our young achievers!

I was at the Young Enterprise Area Finals last night, in my capacity as the North Staffs Area’s Co-Chairman.

It was a brilliant turnout and once again the young achievers from all over North Staffs and Stoke-on-Trent were an inspiration.

At this point I’d like to congratulate all our teams, from Newcastle-under-Lyme School, Westwood College (Leek), Sir Thomas Boughey High School (Halmerend), Haywood Engineering College, Blackfriars, and Brownhills Maths and Computing College (all Stoke-on-Trent).

And thanks to all the local businesses, media and parents who gave us such a brilliant turnout.

A big shout out must go to our overall winners, Junk from Newcastle-under-Lyme School and Touch Wood Customs from Haywood Engineering College. Best of luck to you both in the County Finals at JCB on May 5th.

Finally, with my charity hat on, I have to say that Young Enterprise is an organisation which depends on volunteers from the local community – both as business mentors and board members – and the generosity of the Staffordshire business community.

We could not survive without either of those, and your contributions help to improve young people’s career prospects cannot be understated.

If any of you would like to get involved with YE in North Staffs, please give me a call on 01782 472035 or 07880 733138.
