Billy’s sundae best

Have your say

PUPILS from first and middle schools in north Northumberland won the chance to make their own ice cream sundae.

Amble Neighbourhood Police Community Support Officer Darin Fawcett organised the Spurreli Ice Cream Sundae Challenge for pupils in Amble and Warkworth schools.

Nick and Katie Spurr, who own the ice cream lounge Spurreli in Amble, had donated the first prize in the Amble and Warkworth Good Citizen Award for the last two years and wanted to run this competition.

Nick said: “Quite a large part of our market is young people so it was good to give something back.”

Children from the four first schools and the middle school created a sundae on paper from the ingredients given.

The pupil who came up with the best entry from each school, out of a total of around 350, was invited to Spurelli to make their concoction.

The winner was Billy Handyside, from Warkworth C of E First School, who will get his ice cream named Wor Billy’s Super Sundae Special on the menu.

Nick said: “It was good fun. I think the kids enjoyed it and we ended up with a sundae that we will include in our summer sundaes.”

He said the winning sundae stood out because Billy was very definite about how his creation was put together.

“He had obviously given it a bit of thought. The result was a good-looking ice cream and one we thought would complement our sundaes.

“It wasn’t an easy decision, as all of them had merits, but Billy took it on the day.”
