Clevedon School’s own coffee van, named Hector, will be making an appearance at the official re-opening of Marine Lake on April 2.

The social enterprise has seen about 16 students receive barista training and serve visitors at events around the town, including last year’s Clevedon Tides Festival, and at parents evenings.

Loungers, which owns the Teatro Lounge in Great Western Road, has been particularly helpful in training the students while Bristol-based Clifton Coffee Roasters donated a proper coffee machine to the van.

Jeremy Newall, business studies teacher and head of sixth form, said: “Hector is one of several school projects designed to help students develop business skills.”
