An outdoor catering unit has been purchased to ensure visitors to a Northumberland nature reserve don’t go hungry.

The mobile unit at Northumberland Wildlife Trust’s Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre, near Druridge Bay, has been bought with funding from the National Lottery Emergency Fund.

It was purchased because the Lookout Café remains closed for the time being.

The unit is open six days a week from 10am to 4pm and stocked with soup, cakes and hot and cold drinks.

Top of the menu will be the quirky range of scones, made daily on the premises by the café team and a huge hit with visitors.

Since it opened three years ago, the staff have experimented with dozens of flavours, and it will come as no surprise that lockdown has generated a few more varieties created by the café staff.

They include Sunak Surprise, Johnson Jaw Breaker and Hancock Hoolie.
