A good Break for Hawera

Speaking yesterday at the formal opening of Witt’s training café, The Study Break, he paid tribute to businesses and schools which had provided help to bring the project to life, calling it a “wonderful resource”.

He said businesses, listing Tairoa Lodge, Caffeinate, Marracbo, 2 Chefs, Linx Café, The Gelatto Caffe, Charmaine’s Café and Arabica, had generously provided work experience for students and had also stepped in to help when there had been technical problems with training equipment.  He acknowledged great local support for the café project which will create a genuine working environment for students to train in.

New Witt council chairman Robin Brockie said he had had a positive discussion with South Taranaki mayor Ross Dunlop, who attended the opening, about the district council’s involvement in Witt’s continued growth in Hawera.

He said the new facilities were outstanding and the best of its type on offer from Witt.

The Study Break, in Union St, will be open when the food and beverage students are at Witt from Wednesday to Friday – and will also be in use again tonight, hosting a Business After 5 gathering.
