THE chance to meet the Queen moved a step closer to reality this week for a group of primary school pupils after they won through to the final shortlist of a national cooking competition.

Youngsters from Ashcombe Primary School in Earlham Grove, Weston, entered the competition to design a menu fit for royalty.

Four winning schools from across the country will be invited to Buckingham Palace to have their menus served to the Royal Family.

The school is through to the final four South West schools and final 16 nationally and pupils will find out this week if they will meet meet Her Majesty.

Teaching assistants Helen Hale and Michaela Porter organised the school’s involvement.

Ms Porter said: “We are very excited. Our menu is designed from ingredients grown in the school garden which we think the Queen would like because it is traditional.

“It would be amazing and a once-in-a-lifetime chance.”
