Beans mean a free lunch.

GRANDAD'S vegetable garden helped a young girl to win a slap-up meal for herself and her friends.

Verity Thorpe, aged seven, of Lillington, entered a competition run by the Woodhouse Inn, in Princethorpe.

The youngster, who goes to Telford Junior School, in Telford Avenue, designed a children's menu using runner beans as part of the main ingredients, after being inspired by her grandfather's vegetable patch.

She was so confident of winning that she submitted a list of friends to go with her for the meal.

Chef Gary Burden said: "Verity's menu was chosen because she demonstrated clear presentation skills, nutritious food and colourful illustrations."
