Longfellow’s is now home to our student’s Enterprise wares, which can be purchased or ordered from the café. Students take an idea from conception to completion learning many skills including team work, money management and resilience along the way. Our students have made numerous items including candles, Christmas tree decorations, cement candle holders, cushions, dog treats, animal bedding, the list is endless. All items are very reasonably priced and the money goes back to the classes to go towards trips and residentials.
Longfellow’s provides free Wi-Fi for customers and is a buggy friendly environment.
