14-year old Entrepeneurs Set up Vinyl Business in UK

Budding young entrepreneurs from the Grove School have set up their own business, Retro Records, sourcing and selling vinyl records.

The team, headed by 14-year-old William Baxter, are taking part in the heats of the national competition which encourages young people to get involved in setting up and running their own businesses.

Guided by advice and support from staff at the school and a host of local business people, the team is looking to win the regional heats before having a crack at the national finals which are held later in the year.

The team has been working hard to set up their business and make it a success - opening a bank account, registering for VAT and taking part in a Dragons' Den event at Azur restaurant.

Now, along with other students from the Grove, the group are holding a stall in Priory Meadow tomorrow (Saturday November 29).

They have large stocks of vinyl records for sale at reasonable prices and also offer a finders service where they will track down copies of your favourite hits for a small fee.

They can be contacted by email at or by phone on 07969 653623 (if dialing from the US: 011-44-79-6965-3623).

Their is also a website available showing all their current stock at
