SIX finalists have been chosen to go head-to-head in a Dragon's Den-style competition and fight for the prize of a �10,000 business package.

The Change your Life for �1 competition will feature six potential businesses looking for a helping hand to make their dreams into a reality.

The competition, organised by The Hunts Post and Huntingdonshire District Council, has attracted a wide range of business ideas, which is reflected in the short-list for the final showdown.

Business which have been invited to pitch their ideas in front of the Dragons, include a interior design workshop, a florist, a maker of boat covers, and a music promoter.

The Dragons - made up of some of Cambridgeshire's finest business brains - will choose one winner who will receive a year's lease on an office at the Creative Exchange in St Neots, advice from a business mentor, an accountant and a lawyer, as well as advertising in The Hunts Post and advice from a marketing expert.

The final takes place in St Neots on Tuesday (September 22). A full report will be in The Hunts Post and on www.huntspost24.co.uk
