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.

“The school enjoys close links with the surrounding community and we are so grateful to Neil and Keith for making this donation.”
