Apple Pie Competition

Apple Pie Competition such fun!!

Thank you to all who came along on Saturday 16th September 2023 to this fun event! Entrants brought their homemade pies along to be judged by Pam Kitch and Nigel Butler (two amazing cooks!).   The tables were dressed beautifully! With gold sashes, and corn dollies and flowers! We had some wonderful helpers too.

After much deliberation, 1st Prize was awarded to Ursula Allam, who had never made a pie before, but top rated by the judges and also our lovely audience – Congratulations Ursula! Ursula was presented with a beautiful apple shaped glass ornament.  2nd Prize was awarded to Hazel O’Leary who made a blackcurrant and apple pie – Well done Hazel!

We then had a tasting and judging from the audience too. “Twinduo”, Alison (piano and voice) and Jane Pickering (saxophone) played us all some fabulous favourites from Musicals and famous songs.  They ended their performance with a Last Night of the Proms selection, while we all sang along and waved our flags. We ended with God Save Our Gracious King which was very moving.

Happy moments for all!
