Endowed pupils visit Westminster

Local schoolchildren were proud to help represent Shropshire when Ludlow MP Philip Dunne welcomed food and drink producers from across the south of the county to Parliament in January as part of a Shropshire Producers’ Day.

The event was an opportunity for MPs, peers and staff to get know some of the great produce on offer from the county. Mr Dunne, along with Shrewsbury’s MP Daniel Kawczynski, welcomed student representatives from the Taste of Tanzania coffee project at Bridgnorth Endowed School, as well as organisers of the Ludlow Food and Drink Festival, Hobson’s Brewery and Chilton Gin.

Mr Dunne says, “It was great to welcome some of South Shropshire’s best producers to Parliament to show off the great food and drink offer available in the Ludlow Constituency, and across Shropshire more widely. It was a well-supported event… and all those I spoke to had found it a very worthwhile trip.”
