Youngsters from Filey Ebor Academy are looking forward to an exciting new venture – opening a cafe.

The students have been on a vocational cooking and catering course since September and will open the cafe at Filey Youth Centre after the half-term break.

She said they have come on leaps and bounds over the past few months.

“They’re absolutely amazing. Since September, they have grown in confidence and their food skills have improved. They’re excited about opening the cafe.”

They will prepare and serve a range of foods including breakfasts, bacon and sausage sandwiches, soups and paninis.
