School dinners took on a special flavour for Stannington pupils when top chefs called in.

Chefs from The Char Mausum, St Mary’s Inn and The Ridley Arms took turns to cover for Stannington First School cook Jane Burgess when she had to spend a spell in hospital.

Headteacher Helen Stokoe said: “We were all very grateful to all three establishments who helped us out. All the children and staff thoroughly enjoyed their meals.”
