The venture has been planned and organised by 12 to 16-year-old’s at the town’s Riversdale Centre.

Everything and Anything, a name the group chose after taking on the challenge of starting the Riversdale Milkshake Shack, will open the shack every Saturday between 2pm and 4pm.

The scheme was created as part of the Youth Social Action project run by Keystone Development Trust.

It encourages youngsters to put something back into the community, to meet people and helps to develop their skills.

During their launch on Saturday, March 24 they made £40 - which will be put back into the project.

A variety of flavours are available including Malteser and Oreo.
