Lynn News:

Budding Richard Bransons will be able to try out their business ideas for free by setting up a market stall.

West Norfolk Council is giving entrepreneurs a chance to see if their money-making ideas would work by running a market stall.

Up to 12 new traders are being invited to set up shop in Tuesday Market Place, Lynn, and South End Car Park, Hunstanton, in the Test the Market initiative.

The scheme is not only aimed at would-be traders but also encouraging shoppers to re-discover the area’s markets.

The scheme will run from Monday, August 6, to Sunday, August 12.

Regeneration portfolio holder Alistair Beales is launching the scheme during national market traders fortnight, which started on Saturday and finishes on July 8.
