CHILDREN from Newbarns Primary & Nursery School will be attending an event at the vegan eatery Sweet Pepper Cafe on Dalton Road.

Deputy teacher Fiona Wilson is organising the trip on Tuesday July 9, where children will be introduced to plant-based foods and how they are served up for customers.

Cafe owner Mig Carbonell will take the pupils through the benefits of eating a vegan diet and the many positive affects it has on the planet and personal health.

The event will coincide with Ms Wilson’s afterschool vegan cooking classes which she holds on Tuesday evenings.

There will also be a vegan afternoon tea for charity next month.

The event will take place on July 5 at 3.30pm”
