Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg enjoyed the sweet taste of success this week – thanks to constituent Sarah Coghlan, who presented him with a bouquet of her flower-shaped Cake Pops.

The Hallam MP called on Sarah after she asked him to support local entrepreneurs who juggle family life with running a small, independent business.

Mr Clegg showed an interest in her work and told her about support that was available. “It was great. There was a real buzz in the office,” said Sarah.

Cooking the way to success

Young chefs from Sheffield City College have won honours at the double. Three catering students took first place in the northern heat of the prestigious Brakes Student Chef competition, while a team six bakery and patisserie students took first place in the Easter bread section of the national Foodex event. They produced a range of breads and buns to take the honours. Meanwhile, Jodi Wilson, Hannah Widdowson and Zachary Buckle go on to the national final of the Brakes event at Hotel Olympia later this month.

Fresh look to fast food

Nourish, the healthy fast food shop in Pinstone Street, has spring cleaned its menu in response to customer feedback. New ingredients include asparagus, mozzarella, tuna, hemp and pumpkin seeds. There are also more hot food, salads, wraps and ‘free from’ options.

That Friday feeling

Workers are invited to wind down after a busy week with an Open House night at Tamper: Sellers Wheel from 5.30-11pm on Friday. The evening is a chance to relax with soulful music, craft beer, cocktails and food.
