MEALS will be a bit tastier at Worthing High School now a new herb garden has been planted.

It was created in conjunction with the school’s canteen partner, Caterlink Limited, and the herbs will be used when cooking for the students and staff in the newly-refurbished school kitchen.

West Sussex County Council funded more than £20,000 of improvements to the kitchen, which has created a more up-to-date and user-friendly environment for the catering team.

Students from the school’s eco-council helped plant the new herb garden joined by Bev Lock, Caterlink operations manager, and Nick Harrison, head chef at Bistro@BN14, the Worthing High School student restaurant.

Bev said: “Caterlink is pleased to be able to get involved with school projects and the herbs planted will be utilised by our staff in the school canteen for the daily meals. Posters have been produced to display on the days that we use the herbs to identify them and give some background information on their origins and other uses.”
