Home baking served up with computer support for iPad and tablet users has been the perfect combination at Coldstream’s Tuesday café.

Connect Youth Project has been working with Coldstream Community Trust to offer a weekly Tuesday Café (11am-1pm). Customers can pop in for a scone and a coffee, or home-made soup while also being offered help with their tablet or mobile phone by experts - i.e. young people.

Community learning and development worker, Catherine Hadshar, said: “It’s great to see the young people gaining confidence as tutors and learning how to run a café.

“At the same time our older students are building their digital skills, and getting help to sort out some of the everyday frustrations of computers and iPads. Feedback has been very positive.”

The final session this term is on Tuesday, March 28.
