School bans fresh fruit due to safety worries

A school has banned pupils from taking fresh fruit and vegetables to its harvest festival, as they have been deemed too dangerous.

Although the foods do not seem to be the type of problem that would usually necessitate safety signage, staff at the Rustington primary school have ruled that they cannot be passed on to a homeless charity due to health and safety concerns.

HOMElink is the charity in question, though it has said it would allow fresh fruit and vegetables for its café.

Commenting on the situation, Brian Ball, head of the Summerlea Community Primary School, told the Daily Express: "We support a charity that requests no fresh produce on the basis they can't store it."

It follows a report in the Spalding Guardian, which revealed that a children's swing in Spalding has been deemed a health and safety risk.

Mother Jilly Jellyman installed it for her children, but has been ordered by her local council to take it down before November 5th.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800774749-ADNFCR
