A GROUP of city schoolgirls served up a taste of wartime.

Sandhill View pupils Jessica Wilkinson, Lucy Prior, Allyson Stonehouse, Chloe Farr and Elle Todd won a competition to design a tea for Work Discovery Week 2014.

The 13 and 14-year-olds laid on a First World War-themed meal, complete with contemporary foods and entertainment, to an invited audience of diners at the Marriott Hotel in Seaburn.

The girls worked with Marriott staff to devise their Flanders Field Feast, which included corned beef sandwiches, jam tarts and fruit cake. Sunderland Echo editor John Szymanski joined other guests at the nostalgic event.

“It really was a fantastic spread, which captured the spirit of the era,” he said.

“Congratulations to Sandhill View for putting on such a great event.”
