Students to swot up in city centre cafe

Have your say

STUDENTS are being given extra time to swot up, after a market extended its opening hours.

Bustling with trade by day, Durham Indoor Market has become alive beyond its normal trading hours this month, as the cafe in the city centre location has been transformed into an after-hours study library.

The move came after Durham University students asked for help with pre-exam revision and the market’s Cafe Cenno agreed to provide a place for up to 20 undergraduates to revise for free.

Colin Wilkes, markets company managing director, said: “Once trading has finished for the day, the indoor market offers the ideal location for students to concentrate and focus.”

Mark Race, owner of Durham City Fruitiers at the market, is also giving away student vouchers for fruit.

He said: “This is a typical example of the ways in which the indoor market seeks to work with and support the student community.”

Cafe Cenno is open to Josephine Butler students until 8pm, every Monday this month.
