A member of the Warburtons family enjoyed a slice of college life after being invited to officially open new bakery teaching facilities at Leeds City College.
Brett Warburton, executive director of the Bolton-based bakery firm launched in 1876, was presented with a giant cake made by the college’s bakery students before unveiling a special plaque to mark the occasion.
The college’s bakery department opened on February 4 and contains specialist bakery, patisserie, cake decorating and chocolate classrooms. The firm, which is still run by the Warburton family, will run its own bread-making training diploma from the department.
Mr Warburton said: “We need to ensure we provide the environment for future bakers to be nurtured and developed. It is clear from what I have seen that Leeds City College is the perfect environment for this to happen.”
