Anyone for Seconds?
We were once again given the fabulous opportunity to visit The Maynard, a local Peak District boutique hotel, to make Christmas Puddings. Everyone, both pupils and staff alike, love taking part in what has been an annual event for several years now and we all really appreciate the generosity and kindness extended to our school. The event is sponsored by Holdsworth Foods in Tideswell who provide all of the ingredients free of charge and is supported, hosted and delivered by The Maynard staff including expert supervision from Head Chef Mark Vernon. They are all great with the children, giving drinks and christmas activities and provide us with a fantastic complimentary lunch as well – this year included a great lasagne, vegetables and garlic bread for the main; followed by an assortment of ice creams- really, really appreciated by all of us.
All pupils that attended got a chance to pour in and mix the ingredients, including making a wish as they stirred it all up, before the puddings were sent off into the kitchen for steaming. We look forward to taking delivery of the final Christmas Puddings in time for christmas.
Once again, our extremely grateful thanks go to The Maynard and Holdsworth Foods for making this event happen and giving us the chance to take part. Here are some photographs taken during the day:
