Greetings cards business launched by enterprising Highbridge students

Enterprising Sixth Form students at Highbridge's King Alfred School have formed their own company selling greetings cards.

A number of sixth formers, accompanied by several keen Year 11s, have formed Kings Kards, selling quality handmade greeting cards for all occasions.

They have already received praise from the Young Enterprise Organisation and are selling well at shops in Burnham town centre.

Lewis Hassall, the Managing Director, is ably being supported by Clair Sandilands and Charlotte Lockyer, who are both Operations Directors. Lewis Tuck is the ICT Director, Ashley Lewis and Hannah Caulton are Sales and Marketing Directors, Tara Moxey is in charge of finance, while Megan Stokes is company secretary.

Emily Sanders, Gemma Nash and Owen Jandrell of Year 11 are supporting the company with a publicity programme.

Cards cost just £2.00 and can be purchased in Burnham-On-Sea at Rosemary's Florist, Sea Breeze, Material Needs and Purr-fect Pottery.

On the last day of term, Kings Kards will be offering a St Valentines Day postal service in school.

There will be stalls in both A Block and B Block foyers for students from all years to buy Valentines cards and have them delivered.

All are welcome to attend a trade fair in Wells Town Hall on Saturday 7th February where the cards will also be on sale.
