Around 100 excited children took part in the Great Vale Bake Off.

Pupils aged 9 to 11 from Brigg-area primary schools had been busy baking in readiness for the judging.

And what a team there was to impress - Winteringham Fields sous chef Slawek Mikolajczyk and head cook at The Vale, Lyndsay Ashton.

There were 60 entries in the cake section, but it was Callum Marsden, Cory 
Taylor-Ross and Jessica Rounds who rose to the occasion and picked up the medals.

Winners in the muffins and cup cakes classes were Nikita Jackson, Caitlin Mortimer and Millie Tucker.

And in the cookies and biscuits section, there was a win for Jessica Smith, along with Sam Fowler and Sam Marsden.

“There has been a huge amount of interest in the competition, organised by senior leader Jayne Keeler,” said Vale Academy Principal Gail Young.

“We have been overwhelmed by the interest in the event and it has been a big bonus for us at the Vale Academy to be able to stage it and we are very grateful to all the organisers.

“The bake off has generated a lot of excitement, with some schools having dozens of entries.”
