A Weston-super-Mare chef has received a national award for his work in a Worle primary school.

Steve Fowell took home the Self-Managed School Caterer Of The Year award at the EDUcatering Excellence Awards earlier this month.

Steve – also known as The School Chef – is the head chef at Mendip Green Primary School and has been in post since 2014.

He has already won another national award and two regional awards for his work creating healthy and delicious meals, including the South West Regional School Chef of the Year.

He told the Mercury: “I was up against two other people in the category so there was no guarantee of winning.

“When they read my name out my heart dropped, I could not believe I had won.

“This award only serves to drive me forward to continue to try and be the best.

“Winning such a prestigious award is simply amazing and tops off a fantastic year for me and my team.”
