Meadowdale School visit

Children in Oak and Cherry class were visited by newly elected Harborough District Council Chairman Barbara Johnson, Council Leader Phil King, and Harborough Market staff who awarded prizes to the pupils who had designed the best ‘healthy’ market stall.

The children learned about fruit and vegetables and took part in healthy pizza making as well as hearing about the history of markets in the town.

Cllr Barbara Johnson, said: “I am so pleased that Meadowdale Primary School welcomed us in to their classrooms. It was great to see their wonderful market stall artwork and healthy eating projects. Eating five a day, drinking plenty of water and keeping active are all key messages that we want to encourage.”

Cllr Phil King said: “It was great to see the enthusiasm of the children in learning about the town’s history; I was also very impressed by their market stalls.”
