SCHOOLCHILDREN tucked into a hearty full English breakfast at Hatton Adventure World in Warwick alongside a special guest.
Some 27 six- and seven-year-old pupils were collected from Ferncumbe Church of England School in Hatton on Monday and transported by tractor and open-top trailer to the farm park attraction, where they learnt about the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast, while enjoying locally sourced bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, baked beans and wholemeal toast.
Breakfast was served by local farmers and members of the Warwickshire branch of the National Farmers’ Union (NFU). And the children were joined by Matt Western, MP for Leamington and Warwick, who also met with local farmers.
Matt Western, MP for Leamington & Warwick said, “I enjoyed meeting the children and eating breakfast with them after a very productive meeting with local farmers to discuss the big issues in our community”.
Chris Mann, NFU Branch Chairman, Central Warwickshire said “The NFU are pleased to encourage children to eat a good hearty breakfast. Going to school having eaten a nutritious breakfast gives children many health benefits and helps them perform well in the classroom”.
Kerri Grubb, a teacher from Ferncumbe School, said: “It’s great to have Hatton Adventure World on our doorstep and for children to visit the Farmyard so they can appreciate the link between the animals they feed and the healthy food they eat”.
After breakfast the children were accompanied around the Farmyard to feed and pet the animals.
Hatton Adventure World is open every day throughout the year (excluding Christmas Day and Boxing Day) from 10am to 5.30pm. For more information please visit the website at www.hattonworld.com/adventure-world
