YOUNGSTERS from Chatteris King Edward School were thinking about food miles and their carbon footprint long before the subject hit the headlines.

This picture was taken back in 1980 when teacher Mrs J Lamb organised a project for her 10-year-old pupils on locally grown food.

On a visit to one of the stalls at Chatteris market, the youngsters found produce from March, Manea, Whittlesey, Somersham, Littleport, Witchford and lots from Chatteris itself.

Fish had been brought in from Lowestoft and King's Lynn.
