All hands to the snowy pump!

Headline – Guest chef turns out quality food

With Bampton in the grip of icy weather, it was all hands to the pump on Friday as snow kept many staff from work. Only those who live in the village were able to make the journey, meaning that several people had to step in at the last minute – including Isabelle Kenny! With an empty kitchen and hungry residents, she quickly donned her Chef Whites – and hat! – and got cooking.

With a crack team of staff, paths were soon cleared, residents fed and watered and log fires lit. Isabelle turned out some top notch food; including Savoury Mince, Vichy Carrots, two potato dishes and Baked Rice Pudding – served to applause from the residents who were glad of the hot food!

“It was hard work for us all but I’m truly grateful to everyone who came in today; it just proves that teamwork conquers all!”
