Gregg School Easter Treat

Easter treats for The Gregg Prep School

Head Chef Monika Andres was determined to ensure all the children at The Gregg Prep School would have an Easter treat, so reached out to local businesses. He-Man Dual Controls were only too pleased to support and met with Mr Pascoe (Head Teacher) and Anita Jolley (Deputy Head), to deliver enough eggs for all the students at the school. Both He-Man and the school are keen to support each other further, including student visits to see the He-Man factory in operation, once restrictions allow.
