The dates for 2014 are Fridays 17th Janaury, 7th February, 14th March and 9th May. 

The youngsters have decided to make a donation to BBC Children in Need from their summer fund raising as a thank you for the help received in establising the cookery club. 

The first of four Monday cafes run by the Teen Cook Group took place on 8th July.

Fresh scones with cream & Drumliah strawberry jam, Lemon Drizzle Slices, Carrot Cake and Gluten free Chocolate Cake were on the morning coffee menu. Carrot & corriander soup and a range of sandwiches made to order, were available for lunch. A steady flow of locals and visitors supported the cafe.

The youngsters are fund raising to make their club sustainable. The Kyle of Sutherland Development Trust have underwritten the hall hire costs in support of their enterprising initiative.
