A group of youngsters from Friarage Primary School enjoyed a tour of the market while learning about the £2.7m redevelopment work and also met some of the traders.

They learned about the different fresh, local meat, fruit, vegetables and bread on sale at the market – plenty of ingredients that were perfect for making sandwiches.

Once back at school they joined the rest of the pupils in a competition, run by Scarborough Market Hall and Vaults, to design the best sandwich.

The winner was 10-year-old Ola Jankowska who used tiger bread for a sandwich filled with chicken, ham, carrots, tomato, cheese, lettuce and mayonnaise.

Oakley Kelley scooped second place with a sandwich that included cheese, lettuce, tomato, jam and peanut butter.

Third place went to Mahima Aziz and Holly Taylor who included apple, grapes, cucumber, tomato and mayonnaise in their creation.

Prizes included a special cook’s apron and cookbook for the first prize winner and books for the runners-up.

All the winners received vouchers from Ian Hutchinson at Horsley’s butchers, who supported the sandwich competition.

Councillor Bill Chatt, Scarborough Borough Council’s portfolio holder for public health and housing, said: “The redevelopment work is all about creating a bright and exciting new future for Scarborough Market Hall and Vaults and we were delighted to welcome youngsters who are part of Scarborough’s future to see what is going on.”
