Rotary Young Chef Competition – School Heat

Lee stars in the Kitchen


Enthusiastic young chef Lee Sneddon received a framed certificate and a Gift Voucher for £25 when he won the Longniddry and District Rotary Club’s Young Chef competition held at Preston Lodge School on the 14th January. The runner up was Sean Gaffney who also received a framed certificate and a gift voucher for £20.


The competition, which was entered by three girls and three boys, was judged by John Cleary who provides the catering at Craigielaw Golf Club and Hilary Cochran from Knowes Farm and Shop who also presented the awards to the winner and runner up respectively. President Peter Wood presented all the entrants with certificates, recognising their participation.


The organisers, the Club’s Youth Opportunities team chaired by convener Charles Simpson, appreciated the feedback from the Preston Lodge teaching staff that the pupils had enjoyed the experience, which they felt, was a genuine competition.


The event is part of a Rotary District 1020 initiative to encourage the development of life skills and the next stage is the zone competition at which the winners from Penicuik and Dunbar High Schools will compete with the Preston Lodge winner at Preston Lodge in early February
