NEW Kid’s Lunchboxes

Our Kid’s Lunchboxes went down a treat over the may half term so we will be bringing them back this Summer. Children will be able to pick and mix from a selection of items to make up their very own lunch box. There are also paninis and light snacks, hot and cold drinks plus of course ice creams available to buy.
