Last week, Dan was invited to meet with young students at Wickham Market Community Primary School, who showed him their healthy cooking skills as part of the highly successful ‘Let’s Get Cooking’ initiative. Under the stewardship of Head Teacher Mrs Stanley-Bell and her hardworking staff, pupils at Wickham Market Primary are given the chance to learn how to cook healthy meals during the popular after-school cooking club sessions.
It was a pleasure for Dan to see the pupils enjoying themselves at firsthand as they prepared a range of dishes during his visit. He also heard how the sessions have enabled them to develop vital practical skills, such as weighing, measuring and following instructions, as well as vesting the pupils with greater knowledge and understanding of the sourcing of local food.
Wickham Market Community Primary School continues to go from strength to strength under Mrs Stanley-Bell, and Teaching Assistants Kerri Barker and Sandra Batey have already scooped a national award in recognition of their excellent work with the ‘Let’s Get Cooking’ club. Dan would like to congratulate all of the staff for their ongoing hard work, along with the pupils for their outstanding cooking.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
