Youngsters from Stamford Bridge Primary School served up a lunch for pensioners from the village.

The school held its first Harvest Festival Community Luncheon, an initiative that was suggested and led by the pupils themselves, guided by headteacher Trudi Fitzhenry.

Pensioners from Stamford Bridge Beaumont care home were invited along to enjoy lunch prepared and cooked by the pupils.

On offer was home-made soup, leek and potato or spicy tomato, a selection of crusty rolls followed by home-baked cakes and a pot of tea.

Every one was also given a copy of the recipes so they could make the soups themselves at home. As well as cooking the meal, the youngsters served it too.

Mrs Fitzhenry said the luncheon was very well received and hopes to make it a regular event.

Sarah Paskett, General Manager at Stamford Bridge Beaumont care home, said: “We are really looking forward to returning the school’s hospitality when the children come to sing at Christmas time for our residents. We are frequent visitors to events at the school as I feel it is important that my residents continue to feel a part of the local community.”
