60 CHILDREN enjoyed a special lunch at a village restaurant to learn all about Chinese culture.

On Tuesday, reception pupils from St Wilfrid’s CE Primary School headed down to Choy Hing Village.

The trip has become an annual Lunar New Year tradition between the school and restaurant, which are both based in Grappenhall.

Prior to their visit, the children were taught all about Chinese culture and Lunar New Year.

They made lanterns, moving dragons, and attempted Chinese writing.

Then on Tuesday, they headed to Choy Hing Village to enjoy some delicious food including prawn crackers, egg fried rice, noodles, and spring rolls.

The restaurant also treated them to chopsticks, fortune cookies, and Chinese horoscopes.

Foundation stage teacher Sarah Glover said: “Each year we walk down to the Choy Hing with the children to celebrate Lunar New Year.

“It is a really nice link to have in our locality.”

Owner Kieng Tang also surprised the children by displaying part of the costume used in the traditional lion dance, much to their fascination.

As well as hosting the primary school pupils, the Knutsford Road eatery celebrated Lunar New Year by treating diners to two lion dance performances.
