Swansea Regional Final — the results
IT WAS the first-ever Young Traders Market regional final to be held in Wales — and the event in Swansea proved to be a great success.
The quality of both the young entrepreneurs and the goods they were selling was outstanding. But the judges had the difficult task of choosing winners and they are pictured below.
All nine are now eligible to take part in the National Final at Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire during the August bank holiday weekend, where they will be joined by winners from the nine other regional finals being held in July and August.
NMTF CEO Joe Harrison said: “This first regional final in Wales attracted a lot of interest and we are confident there will be even more participants next year.”
