Green-fingered young chefs from a Suffolk primary school recently turned their hand to serving at tables to raise funds for their ongoing gardening and cooking projects.
Orford Primary School pupils raised an impressive £515 at the afternoon tea event held at The Froize Inn in Chillesford as part of the Aldeburgh Food Festival’s fringe events.
Kitchen and garden project co-ordinator Elisabeth Briley said it was a “very enjoyable occasion” for all concerned.
“The children thoroughly enjoyed it and so did the adults – I spoke to many who were very enthusiastic,” she said.
Orford Primary was selected by the Jamie Oliver Foundation as one of only two pilot schools to grow and cook their own food.

Ms Briley says the scheme has helped pupils learn about eating a balanced diet and staying healthy.
“It’s also about learning how to be as self-sufficient as possible,” she added.
