Business Students Prepare for Christmas Market


Business students at North Shropshire College (NSC) have been hard at work practising for their Artisan Christmas Market which will be held on the 25th of

November in Oswestry at the town market.

The day will also be dedicated to their course assessment. The assignment is for the students to ethically and morally make as much money as possible from the starting cost of £5 of their own money. All the products have been created for the market by the students.

Features of the 17 stalls which will be on the market include baked goods, handmade cards, a locally sourced hog roast, traditional Nordic wish jars, and homemade pet stockings.

Business Tutor Sarah Probert commented, “I thank the College for their support in making the market a possibility and I am extremely proud of the students for making this a reality. I look forward to seeing the public on the night of the 25th.”

Products can be bought on the night or can be ordered from coordinating business tutor Sarah Probert by contacting her on 01691 688028 or via email:
