The Old School Café is open!


After extensive renovations, installation of new kitchen equipment, an expanded menu and a re-branding exercise, today saw the re-launch of the Café at The Cellar Project. The Café is now called “The Old School Café” – so called as the building it occupies was once St Walburgas Catholic Primary School – the re-launch event was very well attended and a great success. On the menu was a tasty selection of hot meals including roast pork, Thai chicken curry, spring green & feta cheese parcels …all served with a selection of sides and desserts.

Here to officially open the Café was the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Dale Smith. He gave a short speech congratulating Marilyn Beech and The Cellar Project team for all the hard work they have put into the renovations, re-branding and promotion and wished them every success. The Lord Mayor also gave a special thank you to the customers for their support and urged them to come to the Café often as they can as support from members of the public is crucial to the success of charities such as The Cellar Project.
