Cowbit Junior School pupils had paid a visit to Machins Transport (Spalding) Ltd in 1990.

Managing director Charles Garn and his wife organised the visit to give around 50 children aged from five to 11 years an idea of what was involved in the marketing of fruit and vegetables and to see some of the different varieties passing through the business each day.

Afterwards, the youngsters – pictured sampling fresh orange juice – were due to take part in a project about the different types of fresh produce they saw on their visit.
