A teatime treat from Taylors

A Taylors Tea Break Time kit is winging its way to staff at Park Mead primary school in Upper Dicker, East Sussex. The school was due to be refurbished and have a new hall built last summer. But, come September, the work had overrun and staff were forced to operate out of a pair of mobile rooms with a Portaloo next door. They moved back to the main school a month later but there was still no staffroom, so the library had to double up as their brew-and-biscuits centre. The hall finally opened in January. Then the heating failed...

Through all the upheaval the staff have worked with a smile on their faces and, as their acting headteacher Carolyn Mears says, they are "a fantastic team to work with and deserve a treat". It's on its way.
