Jason Walmsley, County School Meals Service Adviser congratulated our catering staff "on the hard work your school and the catering staff in particular put into making school meals a sucess.... ensuring that our pupils have access to excellent home cooked school lunch and in turn supporting your pupils health and wellbeing.
