CHILDREN in the charge of two childminders welcomed the Chinese year of the ox with prawn toast, duck and chow mein.

The celebration on Monday marked the start of 15 days' festivities and youngsters used chopsticks to tuck into the dishes prepared for them at The Maple restaurant in Regent Road, Great Yarmouth.

Childminders Jenny Ewing and Sarah Brennan based in Ormesby St Margaret and Caister pooled resources to lay on the treat aimed at broadening cultural and culinary horizons. Jenny said the children had a wonderful time and thanked the restaurant for laying on the feast. A young Chinese girl sang a song in Chinese, bringing a tear to her eye, she said, adding that the youngster was very brave to sing in front of so many. Around 27 children and their parents attended the event and are now busy making thank you cards, Jenny said.
