Have your say

The new kitchen supervisor at Long Sutton Primary School has managed to fill more than tummies in her few short months in the post.

The school’s new kitchen only opened in March, with Catrina Smith and her team serving nutritious hot lunches to the children.

However, school business manager Tracey Roscher says Catrina has also filled the school’s garden with new plants and equipment after winning a competition run by Dobbies Garden Centre.

The competition asked entrants to express how a donation from them would help the beneficiary and what impact it would have.

Tracey said: “It links in beautifully with what Catrina is trying to do in the kitchen in providing good school meals and education the children about where food comes from.

“She and the team she has built around her are all getting to know the children and the kitchen has had an amazing impact in terms of more children are having the meal now it is prepared on site.”

The school had to arrange its own transport for their prize and Bibby Distribution came to their rescue with a vehicle.

Tracey said: “Who needs a van when you can have an articulated lorry? On the lorry it didn’t look much, but when we started unloading it was quite a bit of equipment and plants.”
