A GROUP of young entrepreneurs have won an award for their gastro pub guide.

The students, Annabelle Hazel, Tamara Moon, Freddy Trew, Stanislas Nikitits and Oliver Fuller, from Ampleforth College, picked up the best company at a Young Enterprise Yorkshire 2013 Awards in Harrogate. They also picked up the Most Innovative Product Award and Best Trade Stand award.

Sixth former Annabelle said business studies students came up with ideas such as waterproof speakers and heated gloves but then settled on the idea of a gastro guide combined with a cookbook as it promoted local and seasonal produce.

Pubs featured include The Black Swan, Oldstead, The Blacksmith’s Arms, Westow, Pheasant Hotel, Harome, Talbot Hotel, Malton, and The Worsley Arms in Hovingham.
