TRAVEL by tractor may be an unusual mode of transport for the school run, but children at Ferncumbe School in Hatton were delighted when a tractor and trailer arrived at the school gates on Tuesday to take them to breakfast.
Around 60 children were taken to Hatton Farm Village to enjoy a traditional breakfast of locally produced bacon, egg, sausage, wholemeal bread and milk all served by local farmers as part of Farmhouse Breakfast Week (January 25–31).
The initiative, supported by the National Farmers’ Union, campaigns for everyone to start the day with a balanced breakfast as part of a healthy and active lifestyle.
Carol Blower, marketing manager at Hatton Farm Village which has sponsored Warwickshire’s main event at their Farmhouse Restaurant for the past five years, said: “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet it is often the one missed. It is essential children get a good start to the day which is why we work with Ferncumbe School to help educate a new generation about the importance of a good breakfast.”
Hatton Farm Village is located just off the A4177 between Warwick and Solihull. To find out more visit www.hattonworld.com.
