A teatime treat from Taylors

7th January 2005 at 00:00
A small building job at Rosebery primary school in Loughborough was supposed to take no more than three days, writes trainee teacher Rosie Petty. But the builders discovered problems with the Victorian beams that meant every classroom had to be cleared, so scaffolding could be put up and the ceilings checked, a process that caused weeks of dirt and disruption - Year 1 had to move three times in as many weeks. But everyone, from the canteen staff up, worked tirelessly to keep everything running smoothly and the children happy. To welcome them back to school, we're sending them our staffroom treat of a Yorkshire Tea Break Time kit from Taylors of Harrogate. It includes a teapot, four bone china mugs, a dozen tasty Yorkshire tea loaves and, of course, plenty of Yorkshire tea.

Bettys and Taylors is a traditional family business based in North Yorkshire that specialises in high-quality foods, such as handmade cakes and chocolates, fine teas, exclusive coffees and luxury biscuits.
