Charlton Manor school opens Sweet Pickings café to the community

Chef Flavio Hernandez and head Tim Baker are getting ready to welcome the community

You might have heard about the award-winning food on offer to pupils at Charlton Manor primary school – from this Saturday, you can sample it yourself. From 16 November, the school’s head Tim Baker and its chef Flavio Hernandez are opening the doors of their Sweet Pickings café for breakfast from 9am and lunch from 11am to 2.30pm. Breakfast is just £3 (£1 for children), lunch is £3.50 (£1.50 children).

Mr Baker has been running a healthy eating campaign at Charlton Manor since 2004, and has developed Sweet Pickings to get the word out into the wider community. Find out more on our sister site, 853, or follow @charlton_manor on Twitter for the latest.
