Romford MP Andrew Rosindell helps Marshalls Park celebrate World School Milk Day

Romford MP Andrew Rosindell helped a primary school celebrate World School Milk Day.

On Wednesday (September 26), Mr Rosindell dropped into the Orange Tree Pre-School, Marshalls Park School, to dish out milk to youngsters.

World School Milk Day was founded by the UN in 2000 to promote the practice of giving free milk to youngsters. The free milk initially extended to everyone in the UK under 18 but was curtailed by successive governments.

School milk remains free to under-fives.
