PUPILS at Barkway First School have enjoyed a visit from the Food Standards Agency's Cooking Bus

The Cooking Bus spends 42 weeks a year travelling to schools around the country, teaching children about food preparation and hygiene, as well as basic cooking skills.

Barkway School runs a popular lunchtime cooking club and also has a Food for Life group, made up of parents and teachers.
