A group of sixth form pupils from Bridgnorth Endowed School were delighted be nominated by Mayor Vanessa Voysey to attend a special ceremony that celebrates exceptional young citizens, hosted by the High Sheriff at Shrewsbury College. The nomination was in recognition of the work of the Taste of Tanzania team, who produce and sell fresh coffee bags, supporting a sister school in Tanzania with the proceeds. The scheme, which has been running at the school for around five years, also gives the students a taste of running their own enterprise. As sixth formers leave, and with a change of head at the school, there is a new team taking over; Chelsie Henshaw, James Whitt, James Wilson, Gemma Harris, Connor Haycock and Lauren Preece will be guided and supported by Mr Street and Mrs Rhodes. Taste of Tanzania will be selling their wares at Pattingham Church fete on 1 July, at Cosford and Ludlow Food Fairs, as well as always being in stock at the Apley Farm Shop.
