More training opportunities at the newly refurbished Café Flourish

A popular Doncaster café has been given a total makeover and a brand new name and there are now even more opportunities for people wanting to learn vocational skills!

The former Victorian Tea Room at St Catherine’s House at Woodfield Park, off Tickhill Road, Balby, closed its doors mid-March and has now re-opened following a complete transformation as Café Flourish.

Steve Gillman, Flourish’s Operations Manager, said: “We are really excited about the transformation. We already train people in new skills but the revamped Café Flourish will enable us to train more people in more skills.

“We have created the opportunity for Doncaster residents wanting to gain experience or confidence through training in a wide range of areas including how to be a barista, customer care skills, using tills, food preparation, baking and cooking.

“Café Flourish creates an environment for learning that will be as near to working in business as possible to help those taking part to gain the vital skills they need to then look for work,” added Steve. “Our ambition is to create a centre of excellence for vocational pathway training.”

Come and see the revamped Café Flourish for yourself – open Monday – Friday 9am-4pm and Saturday and Sunday 11am-4pm.
