Children from West Boldon Primary School spent a fin-tastic afternoon at a special fish workshop in Asda Boldon.

The supermarket chain said the children were there as an early Good Friday celebration – a day closely associated with fish – and to help them feel more comfortable with the foodstuff.

The master class also taught the children about all the health benefits and importance of a balanced diet that seafood brings to the table.

Asda Boldon fishmonger, Dorothy Dobson, led the master class, teaching the children how to prepare a fish and explaining their day-to-day role at the store’s fish counter.

The children finished off their afternoon with the store’s community champion, Tracey Tough, who discussed the seasonality of different fruit and vegetables with the children.

Tracey said: “We loved having the children from West Boldon Primary School at the store. 
 “They had a fantastic afternoon learning all about fish.”
