Visit to FEED at Vineyard Church, St Albans

So today marked our last visit for this academic year - and what a fantastic visit it was!

We visited Vineyard Church in St Albans and spent the morning with families who attend the FEED food bank at the church. The food bank there is one of the largest in Herts county.

Huge thanks to Joanne Davies from Stansted Airport Aerozone and Captain Joyce Hart from easyJet. The children loved meeting you and your enthusiasm for aviation!
