Schoolchildren grinning like a Cheshire East cat

1. School meal mascot

Animals are normally banned from kitchens, but there could be an exception made for the new school meals mascot in Cheshire East.

A competition was recently held where schools across the Borough were asked to come up with a name for the new mascot, a large cat.

The winning entry came from Woodcock Wells Primary School in Mow Cop. Pupils came up with the name CECil – ‘Cheshire East Council incredible meals’.

The new mascot will be the ‘face’ of the service, championing school meals and the importance of healthy eating.

CECil will be used to raise the profile of the great range of low-cost, balanced school meals and snacks available.

The mascot recently visited Woodcock Wells to present the school with their prize – £200 to go towards cookery or gardening equipment.

Councillor Hilda Gaddum, Cabinet member with responsibility for children and family services, said: “January is the time of year when many people take stock and make resolutions to eat more healthily.

“We are encouraging schoolchildren across Cheshire East to do the same. Apart from being good for their health, there is also strong evidence that a balanced diet can aid concentration levels in the classroom.

“I would like to congratulate the pupils from Woodcock Wells for choosing the winning name.”
