IS IT tangerine? Is it healthy? Then it’s on the menu!

For one day only school lunches took a tangerine twist as a Blackpool primary school launched it’s brand new menu with the help of a very special Seasiders star.

Tom Ince popped in to see the excited youngsters at St Nicholas C of E School, in Marton, as they dressed head to toe in tangerine to celebrate their new school menu.

Lancashire County Council has taken over the school’s catering arrangements and tangerine tikka and pizza were on yesterday’s special tangerine day menu.

The school’s business manager Rachel Horobin said: “It’s a different provide and the menu is 90 per cent fresh food so it’s fantastic, and a lot of it is locally sourced.”

Headboy Sam Secker, 10, added: “The new school dinners are really cool and very nice. It was really good yesterday because we had a tangerine day.

“Everyone was excited Tom was coming and he seemed nice.”

And Ince also met one of his youngest fans - teacher Nicola Squires is such a big Blackpool supporter her three-week old son Olly is named after Ian Holloway.
