Silver service as students host the mayor
IT was service with a smile when students at the King’s school prepared and served dinner to the Mayor.
The students at King’s Girls’ Division welcomed Mayor of Cheshire East, Councillor Hilda Gaddum, to their silver service event event.
It was the culmination of a week-long course where the Year 10 pupils learned about all the demands of an industrial kitchen, from buying the best at a fair price and balancing food groups, to silver service, to health and safety among the hobs.
James Plumridge, who runs Chartwell’s Bringing the Fun Back in Food, which ran the course, said: “The food industry provides a wide range of long term career opportunities with exciting and creative challenges and for many of these students it will also allow them to find part time work especially when they are at university. Our intensive food preparation course is designed to give them a basic set of skills and whet their appetite to learn more.”
Coun Gaddum said: “It was a wonderful night and a most enjoyable and delicious meal served with a smile.”
The event raised £300 for Visyon, a charity based in Congleton, which supports young people with emotional problems.
