MP Nigel Mills helped children at Denby and Marehay Pre-School celebrate World School Milk Day by swapping his parliamentary duties for those of honorary milk monitor.

The school is one of thousands across more than 40 countries taking part in celebrations dedicated to World School Milk Day this month. The day encourages children to drink milk and aims to educate them about the benefits of milk. Manager Jo Olver said: “Nigel had a look round the school and interacted with the children and talked to them about the health issues of food. He got his apron and his gloves on helped out at snack time.”

The pre-school is next to the Springs of Living Waters church on Derby Road.
