June 5th 2005: School Dinners Event

Nearly 70 people enjoyed going back in time to experience a school dinner in what used to be Fairford’s Free School, then became Farmor’s School and is now Fairford Community Centre. Transport was provided by the Fairford Community Bus to bring some of Fairford’s elderly residents to the event.

Dinner ladies Alison Hobson and Pam Nelmes served up traditional cottage pie and vegetables followed by rice pudding and jam. Thanks to Alex and Luci D’Elia and all the staff at The Bridge Restaurant for providing the food.

Headmaster, Trevor Hing said grace at the start of the meal and kept order throughout, dishing out the punishments to the naughty boys and girls!
