Canteen extension to go ahead in Stoke-on-Trent

June 26, 2018 by  

Plans for a larger canteen in a school got the green light from Stoke-on-Trent City Council recently.

The canteen is located within St Luke’s Primary School. The dining hall has been busy and school leaders have been concerned by the space shortage, with catering staff finding it awkward to deliver all the necessary meals in the appropriate timeframes. The local authority backed a proposal to extend the canteen after planners looked at the problem. Techniques such as poster printing in Stoke-on-Trent can be used to brighten up the interior of functional buildings and draw attention to changes.

Parent Natalie Simpson is from Abbey Hulton, and two of her children attend the school. She has utilised the canteen on craft days in the past and she is highly supportive of the envisaged expansion. She told the Stoke Sentinel:

“My daughter came home one day and said that she didn’t have time to finish her dinner because they had to rush them to get the next lot of children in, so this is a positive thing.”

The extension will consist of a single storey. A sloping roof is to be constructed to complete the job. The aim of the scheme is to enlarge the seating area, with it being expected that school numbers should broadly remain steady in the near future.
