A TV chef paid a visit to budding young cooks in Coventry for the official opening of a new kitchen at their school.
Glynn Purnell, one of the stars of the BBC2 series Great British Menu, was impressed by the new facility at Park Hill Primary School in Green Lane, which was fitted for free by a local business.
The Michelin-starred chef cut the ribbon on the kitchen, which he hopes will get youngsters interested in good, honest cooking.
Breakfast club organisers reduce target to ten schools
A BID to set up a breakfast club in every city primary school by the end of next year has been scaled back due to the credit crunch.But organisers said they are still committed to the project as they launched the latest club at Broomhouse/St Joseph's Primary School yesterday.
Hearts teamed up with the finance giant Aegon and the city council to run the scheme, which is supported by the Evening News. They aim to get businesses to sponsor clubs at local schools. An ambitious target of establishing clubs at all 94 schools by the end of 2010 was initially set. But organisers now say this is "unlikely", and have set a smaller target of ten by the end of this year.
