12th September I was at the Wavell School official opening, what a fantastic event to attend as the newly appointed Chair, truly a day to celebrate all that’s best about school catering. The work and dedication that has gone into this project is an example to us all of what can be achieved when we join up with colleagues school and stakeholders to the benefit of pupils.

28th September Love British food summit was all about supporting British Food and for LACA, putting British Food on our menus? I am sure many of you already do but it was great to hear that over 300 schools in Hampshire have joined in the “British Food Fortnight” promotion,  maybe something you could consider for next year?

Coming up in October

4th Welsh Regional meeting and talking about the Survey that Welsh members took part in the summer 2017 and the possible implications around the Breakfast Service and UIFSM  which was included in the survey.

5th October is the NACC Awards evening and it will be great to catch up with old colleagues from the NACC (or ABSSC) as it was called back in the day!!.

Tuesday 10th is the EduCatering awards evening and really pleased to see LACA shortlisted for its amazing NSMW promotion. So very best of luck to all those shortlisted.

Wednesday 11th I have a meeting at a Gold Food for Life School in Derbyshire, Crich Junior School. The meeting is with Food for Life’s director James Cashmore and Jeanette Orrey to talk all about the School Awards programme.

Thursday 12th the South West Regional event takes place at Frogmary Green Farm, South Petherton. I am looking forward to meeting the chair Brad Pearce and all the staff attending who work in that region.

Finally at the end of the month will be the meeting with Oakhill who provide advice around the political agenda and all things Westminster.

18th-23rd October I am away on leave , for filling a lifetimes dream of visiting the Motown Museum (Hitsville USA) in Detroit, we may even get to meet Mr Berry Gordy the founder of Motown as this is an organised trip. Dancing shoes are polished and packed!!

Another very busy month and I hope to catch with you all soon, please email me any questions or queries to LACA admin
