Appletree Gardens First School had invited him as part of their Healthy Schools week.

Year 1 teacher Philippa McAvelia said: “Most of our children have never experienced such a guest and seeing such pleasure and pure joy has been brilliant.

“They had been counting down the sleeps.

“They and the staff have all had a great time.”
