TRADITIONAL home-made English delicacies were on sale on the Continent at the weekend thanks to a group of pupils from the North-East.

Youngsters at Trinity School in Durham helped to create a 112lb consignment of preserves that was on offer to people at a craft fair in France.

The school's deputy headteacher, Ann Southren, and colleague Glynis Walton travelled to Amiens to sell the jars of strawberry and damson jam, marmalade and mango chutney.

Mrs Southren said the preserves were made using ingredients grown in the school garden during "enterprise" lessons by pupils aged 14 to 16.

She said: "We have a community cafe on Friday afternoons and we help to raise money for school funds from the sale of the jams and chutney."

The community cafe is open to the public at the school's Kirkham building, opposite Bistro 21, at Aykley Heads, Durham, on Fridays, from 1.30pm to 2.45pm.
