Bishop joins March pupils for lunch

YOUNGSTERS at a March school enjoyed lunch with some special VIP guests today as part of National School Meals Week.

All Saints Primary School played host to the Bishop of Huntingdon the Rt Rev Dr David Thomson; mayor of March, Councillor Andrew Pugh and mayoress Silvia Pugh; Rev Jenny Webb priest at St Peter’s and St Mary’s Churches in March, and school governors Hazel Harwin and Cherrie Gatty.

The guests were joined by head teacher Rachael Beeson and were waited on and served by pupils.

School caterer Louise Ayres said the idea of the week is to promote healthy eating with pupils joining in a number of activities.

The guests were asked to select a meal from the normal menu which included pizza, jacket potatoes, potato wedges, sweet corn and broccoli followed by oatie fruit crunch and custard or chocolate cracknell.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) pupils will tuck into a meal prepared and cooked by Daniel Smith, a chef at Claridges Hotel in London. Daniel, the son of Louise Ayres, will also give the youngsters a master class in how to prepare some mouthwatering goodies.
