A GUIDED tour of a traditional butchers shop was on the menu for 15 lucky girls from the First Barnston Rainbows group.
A weekend visit to the H Stokes in High Street, Great Dunmow was arranged for the troop as part of the 'Our Community' theme which the group is currently studying.
Shop owner Nick Hards was only too happy to play the tour guide, showing the girls what goes on in front of and behind the meat counter.
Group spokesman, Clare Skelton, thanked Mr Hards for his time and said: "We visited the shop to learn all about what a butcher does and how they prepare the various different meats.
