Traders on the Moor Market are handing their skills and knowledge down to the next generation thanks to an apprenticeship scheme.
About a dozen apprentices are being shown the ropes on stalls at the new market while getting on-the-job training from The Source Academy.
One of the apprentices is 16-year-old McCaulay Foster, who has taken on a role with Slattery’s Family Butchers.
His boss, John Galley – who has been a butcher for 33 years – said: “There are some really good opportunities for young people in butchery, it’s a highly skilled trade and there aren’t enough trainees coming through.
“We’re a traditional carcass butchers so McCaulay is lucky.
“He’ll get to know everything there is to know, from making sausages to boning out.
“Supermarkets can’t provide the knowledge and expertise on everything like we can.
