Somercotes Academy students recently visited the East Lindsey Celebrating Business Expo to network with local firms.

The expo was held at Kenwick Park Hotel in Louth.

The hotel also hosted the first East Lindsey Business Awards in the evening.

There were 27 business finalists on the day.

They were there to showcase their products and services, which were seen by a number of local school children in the area.

Year 10 student from Somercotes Academy, Phoebe Perrow said: “The event was really interesting.

“We got to meet lots of local companies and learn about the opportunities on offer for us in the future.”

Caroline Yates, Somercotes Academy principal, said that it was a great chance for students at the school to meet with local companies.

She added that it was also the chance for them to see the kind of job opportunities that are available within this region.

“The Year 10 students made the most of the day,” Mrs Yates said.

“They also got to talk to as many companies as possible and gathering information on future careers.”
