A Cash Mob event aims to support independent businesses by flooding them with customers from the community. The Little Amsterdam event was organised in collaboration with community organisation Visit Banbury.

Headteacher Tracey Wilson said: “We are delighted to be supporting local businesses in Banbury. The town has a strong sense of community and we want to do all we can to ensure that it has a sustainable future.

The children enjoyed a wide range of sweet and savoury pancakes from the restaurant’s menu.
