Schoolchildren from Fence were hooked as a local chef paid them a visit to discuss the importance of having fish in their diets.

Antony Shirley, executive chef at the award-winning Seafood Pub Company, gave a demonstration in assembly at Wheatley Lane Methodist VA Primary School.

Antony said: “As a company we always like to get involved with the local community, and teaching young children about fish and why it’s important in the diet is something I’m really passionate about.

“We have recently acquired the Roosters Bistro at Roaming Roosters in Higham, so thought this would be a great chance to interact and educate youngsters who live close by, and may visit the bistro from time to time with their parents.”
