News: Young web designer given a taste of industry


Jack Biggs, a 12 year old pupil at Netherwood ALC in Barnsley has proven what a difference young people on work experience can make to a business, with the creation of a brand new website for a Manvers-based company.

Jack approached marquee and gazebo manufacturer Gala Tent, as he was interested in IT and website design and wanted some commercial experience during the summer holidays. Jason Mace, managing director, had just bought the Double Barrel Steakhouse in Thurcroft, Rotherham, so set Jack on with the job of creating a new website for the new venture.

Jason gave Jack a brief on what he wanted for the website design and single-handedly came up with the concept for the Texan-themed website, which was perfect for the steakhouse.

Jason Mace was very impressed with Jack's work, he said: "Jack took the challenge of designing the website head-on and built it completely from scratch himself. I'm a big believer in giving young people a chance as when they are given an opportunity to work on a real life project, they can really shine. Jack has done a fantastic job creating our new website for the steak-house and this should give him a great start to his portfolio and is something he can be proud of."

The former Double Barrel public house is currently going through an £80,000 renovation with plans for the steakhouse to open towards the end of October.
Craig Savage, formerly of the Cross Keys pub and steakhouse at Hoyland in Barnsley, will run the new venture after recently signing a ten year lease.

Jason Mace said: "Craig has over ten years' experience in running steakhouses and pubs and it made sense to bring in a manager like him who really knows this business inside out. We are really excited about the steakhouse opening at the end of October, there will be nowhere like this in South Yorkshire."

Craig Savage, director of the Double Barrel Steakhouse & Grill, added: "We are really pulling out all the stops with the Double Barrel Steakhouse. This will be the only restaurant in South Yorkshire where you can eat a 72 oz steak! We're also giving diners the chance to cook their own steak at their table exactly how they like it, which people are really looking forward to!"
