Organiser Charlotte Moorby said: “The event attracted a great deal of interest from people of all ages, both wanting to enter the event and come along and sample the baked goods on offer! We were delighted with the turnout and the support we had from members of the local community.

“In addition to the bake off competition itself, there was also a number of other stalls and activities for visitors to get involved with, including a caption competition, quiz and a wooden spoon decorating competition for children to enjoy.

“The kitchen team did a stellar job serving up afternoon tea, and we were able to raffle off a number of prizes, including a bottle of wine donated by Healds Hall Hotel and a £10 M&S Simply Food gift voucher.

“The current total of funds raised by the event stands at £411. This money will aid the Christ Church roof appeal and efforts to preserve the beautiful building for many years to come.
