PUPILS at St Michael’s CE Primary School in Playden were excited this week when a gritting lorry turned up in their playground.

Class 4 had entered a competition run by East Sussex County Council to name one of their gritting lorries. The winning entry came from Gabrielle Stone, who named the lorry Ready Salted in a moment of inspiration.

Head John Greenway said: “All of the children got a chance to climb into the cab and get a bird’s eye view, as well as tooting the horn.”
