Healthy Dalbeattie Students 'Pop-Up' to advise public
Tuesday 9th February, from 11 am until 1 pm, S3 Hospitality students took part in a healthy eating session in the 'pop-up' shop, Maxwell Street, Dalbeattie. After a couple of training sessions with Community Learning and Development staff the groups were confident to then take their message on to the streets of Dalbeattie. Students asked members of the public to arrange soft drinks in order of which ones contained the most sugar. This produced some interesting results.
