After five students were selected last week, Ellen Boost, Shardaine Seaton, Chloe Burden, Skye Fisher, Mitchell Wilson, Julien Greenbank and Rebecca Pridmore have now been chosen to work alongside them for the Big Student News Takeover.

The seven students had to put their NHC marketing ideas to a panel of judges on Tuesday.

The team of 12 – which also includes Luke Skinner, Sam Jackman, Rhys Sherwood, Ciaran Merritt and Jake Tillbrook – will take on numerous roles during the takeover.

Reporters from the Comet will be visiting NHC’s five sites next week to pass on their expertise to students in the lead-up to the takeover, when businesses can also turn up to share their stories with the takeover students.

If you have a business in the area and want to find out more, email the Comet’s digital sales manager Mark Waymouth on mark.waymouth@archant.co.uk
