YOUNG entrepreneurs shared their business ideas at a meeting of minds held at Birchwood Park.

Priestley students were among those who attended the Young Enterprise Warrington Area Board Final to represent their company Wireworks.

The team made a presentation to local businessmen and discussed the merits of their idea of creating jewellery from wire, a product that played a vital role in Warrington’s history.

“The students said they had acquired skills while working on the project that would be with them for life,” said Professional Studies Tutor Debbie Booth.

“They all took on the project as an enrichment activity alongside their usual studies and showed real creativity in developing their products.”

During the young enterprise event Wireworks were praised for their professionalism and innovative products.

Eight students – who are all studying BTEC Business Studies – made up Wireworks, but it was Joseph McGurty who developed the idea and technique for making the jewellery from watching youtube clips.

Alan Hunter, formerly of ICI, and Nick Mullins, from Rock Oil, helped mentor the Priestley team.

The students were Joseph Mcgurty, Chloe Hatton, Aimee Walker, Alex Leslie, Saabah Mohammed, Georgina Harrington and Charmie Valdez.
