The Great Whickham Bake Off (and jam-making competition)
We had a meeting of the Lighting Up Whickham group last night to press on with arrangements for the Whickham Community Festival. This year it will be on Saturday 4th July and the theme is the 1960s and 70s - flower power and flares. This will be the 4th annual festival and this year we will be having an extra event - a baking and jam making competition. Inevitably (as it was my suggestion) I have been given the task of organising it. Sadly, that means I won't be able to enter it myself.
We are looking for an independent judge, preferably one with baking skills. We will not be charging people to enter the competition but they will have to make two over everything they enter as one of them will go into the raffle. All funds raised will go towards the Village's Christmas decorations.
The photo above is of an apple and marrow pie we made in January. Sadly, it was not entered in any competition as we ate it within a day of making it.
