An apprentice from a Fakenham restaurant is to join over 100 bar, brewing and dining sector apprentices at the House of Commons next week to showcase the huge range of opportunities that the industry offers in training and developing young people.

Harley Dawson who works at The Running Horse, part of the Marston’s group, in the town is set to meet with MP Yvonne Fovargue to talk about his career and have a bit of fun in challenging the MP to participate in a number of activities that showcase the skills learnt in the day-to-day apprentice roles.

Chairman of the Pub and Bars industry group, Keith Knowles, said: “This is an industry where it is not unusual to start on minimum wage and progress to senior management earning in excess of £100K. For young people career progression in pubs and bars can be rapid with many progressing to a management role within three years.”
