Hi there!

For those of you who don't know who I am, I'm Luke the new Operations and Catering Manager, for a joint venture between Lench's Trust and Aquarius. I'm originally from sleepy Shropshire, so these busy Birmingham roads are causing me some trouble as all I'm used to is the odd tractor!

My project involves renovating a historic public house called the Adam and Eve in Digbeth, to create a new Cafe and Conferencing space to provide apprenticeship opportunities for young people in need of assistance to getting on their chosen career path! Those apprentices will then work jointly between the Adam and Eve Site, but also, the fantastic kitchen at William Lench Court!

At the moment it's all hands on deck at the Pub site as we are in the middle of raising money for the renovations, getting designs for the place drawn up, and also advertising vanacies for young people to fill the spaces! If you want to know anymore and/or would like to help, then please feel free to contact me, or if you have any memories of the Adam and Eve when it was a working pub I'd love to hear from you!

It's a fantastic project because it gives local young people great training and mentoring opportunities, and will really put them on the right path to success!
