Father of NeverSeconds Blogger, Martha Payne, met with Council Leader Roddy McCuish this morning

As promised by Councillor Roddy McCuish, a meeting took place with David Payne, the father of Martha Payne, an enterprising and imaginative pupil who has written the Neverseconds blog.    Mid Argyll Councillors Dougie Philand and Sandy Taylor joined the Leader of Argyll and Bute Council at the meeting, which took place in Kilmory.

The council are pleased with the outcome of the discussions held with Mr Payne and look forward to his continued dialogue with the Council, with a view to alleviating any concerns that exist about school meals in Argyll and Bute.

Councillor Roddy McCuish said “It was good to finally meet with Mr Payne.  It is amazing that a wee girl from Lochgilphead has managed to change the way we all look at school meals, and has raised a fortune for Mary’s Meals.”

David Payne said “I am delighted to have had discussions with Argyll and Bute Council and we will shortly be announcing our future plans for NeverSeconds and we are confident that even more money will be raised for Mary’s Meals.”
