THE Patriots Arms in Chiseldon is providing lunch packs for pupils who qualify for free school meals.

A sandwich, drink, piece of fruit and bag of crisps will be given out to each family in need who pops into the pub over half-term.

Please call chef Sunny on 07807037231 or manager Sanjay Patel on 07587694373 to let them know how many lunches are needed and on what days.

Plus, under-12s can eat from the kids' menu for free each lunchtime.

Mr Patel said: "During lockdown, we provided hundreds of free meals within the community. As an extension of that support, during half term, we are offering free meals and lunch packs for local children."

"In these tough times, we want to give back to our community who have supported us so much during this difficult year."
