Festive market for all at college

A glittering festive market is coming to West Nottinghamshire College for Christmas shoppers to enjoy.

Members of the public will be able to enjoy seasonal songs from the Create Christmas Choir, who are raising funds for the Little Princess Trust, while browsing a range of market stalls for gifts on Wednesday (4 December).

Featuring over twenty stalls, the market, which is open from 10.30am to 1.30pm, will see students selling yuletide goodies such as Christmas puddings and greetings cards, novelty gifts, sweets and jams in the college’s new covered courtyard at the Derby Road campus.

All products have been handmade by students as part of entrepreneurial projects while on their courses and all profits made from the market will go towards investing back into each business initiative.

Also at the market there will be staff from the college’s Revive salon who will be selling vouchers for treatments at the Derby Road-based hairdressing and beauty salons, while staff from the health and welfare team will be on hand to give advice to students about being safe and healthy during the Christmas holidays.

Foundation studies learners will also be collecting money to donate to the Cat’s Protection League and representatives from Help For Heroes will be there collecting donations for the well-known UK military charity.

Entitlement, enterprise and employability manager Cate Hunt said: “The festive market is a wonderful opportunity to invite members of the public, staff and students to come along and enjoy a wonderful atmosphere and buy some quality handmade gifts in the lead up to Christmas.

“Our enterprising students have worked so hard both on making and presenting their products and organising the market day itself, I’m certain it will be a huge success.”
