10 January 2013



"Best ever Christmas lunch served at Selsted School" Dear Coleen. Our staff have asked me say what a good Christmas lunch they had on 20th December. It was the best one they have ever had from a school meals contractor – most of them have been here for several years so that is quite an accolade. They were particularly impressed that the turkey was "real" meat and not a roll. Please pass this on to the kitchen staff with our thanks. Regards Jackie, School Secretary "A thank you from St Martins School" Hi All. Just wanted to say that Christmas Dinner was great and enjoyed by all. I did thank Louise but just wanted you to know that we really appreciated how hard she worked! Merry Christmas! Kate Love -Headteacher "A thank you from St Peters school Folkestone for their Christmas lunch" Dear George and the "Gang" Canwe thank you on behalf of all the children, staff and visitors for a super Christmas dinner. We are in agreement it was one of the best we have had. A lot of hard work went into producing our meal and we are very grateful. Hope you all have a happy and restful Christmas. With best wishes Triggy, Kim and Ms Deacon

JoJoe Crow "Out and About"
01 September 2012



One of our local schools had a special visitor to officially open their school garden today, after receiving a cheque, to set up its own kitchen garden. The project will help educate pupils about the origins of fresh food and the benefits of growing your own fruit and vegetables. The donation from Caterlink’s charitable Foundation will go towards the construction of raised garden beds at the school. The School will be able to grow an array of fruit and vegetables and involve many more children, their parents and members of the local community in food related projects and learning. The kitchen garden will enhance the focus on fresh food already in place at the school through the work of Caterlink. Neil Fuller, Managing Director of Caterlink, said: “We are delighted to support the school through our Foundation’s Kitchen Garden project. By working closely with schools, we hope to have a positive impact in reinforcing the importance of fresh food and provenance to local children. This donation from WSH Foundation will go a long way to ensuring we can achieve this.”
