n A BISTRO in Backwell is helping students by setting up a study area and an apprenticeship scheme.
21 West Café Bistro, in West Town Road, has taken on two students from the City of Bristol College to train them alongside their studies.
Manger Jayne Grocock, who has been running the bistro for 14 months with Caroline Sutherland, said: “With unemployment levels so high in the UK, these youngsters deserve a chance in life and we are certain they face a bright future with everything they learn from us.”
The owners are also offering the premises as a study room due to the lack of library facilities in the area.
The cafe has free wi-fi and sockets for laptops and iPads so students can get some revising done in the peaceful surroundings.

Alice Cook, a Plymouth University student from Nailsea, said: “It’s great to have somewhere like 21 West Cafe to come when I’m home from university.
“I wish it had been here when I was at school in the area. It would have helped to have a place to hang out with friends, revise for exams and eat chocolate muffins.”
