A Day out at School

We have just spent a very stimulating day at St Lawrence primary school in Rowhedge.

It is Community week at St Lawrence school and we as a local business had been invited to talk to the children this Thursday. We had planned a walk through of our production line from inception to wrapping and selling, hopefully fitting into the 45 minute slots that had been allocated to us.

It was a little daunting at first, but soon the enthusiasm of the children swept us along and I was honestly quite relieved that there were 3 teachers and assistants with the year 4's or else things might have got a bit out of hand during the scent exploration session, there were rose petals and cotton buddies everywhere. Apparently we were very stimulating, which is a good thing in this day and age of  play stations and X-Boxes.

Anne heard one little youngster ask the teacher at the end of the day, "Are we going to make soup now?".

So maybe we weren't quite as brilliant at getting our message across, as we thought.

  1. Wonderful. I bet you've sown some seeds and if you don't have future customers, you'll have future competitors.
