Shute businesses fund school history trip
Money will help pay for pupils to attend a Tudor banquet at Weycroft Hall
CHILDREN from Shute Primary School are set to get a taste of fine dining in bygone days – thanks to two local businessmen.
Neil Sansom, of NAS Vehicle Repairs, and Keith Sweetland, of SAK Logistics, have each given �100 so that pupils from Juniper Class can visit Weycroft Hall for a special educational day later this month.
The pupils, who have been studying the Tudors this term, will enjoy a Tudor banquet, breadmaking and dancing at the hall.
Class teacher Kate Austin said: “‘It’s an opportunity to really bring history to life and a trip the children are really looking forward to.
