Budding bakers have been channelling their inner Mary Berry as they took part in a charity bake-off by Healthy and Local Food for Families (HALFF).

There was a twist to the competition as the cooks were asked to make either a no-added-sugar mince pie or a Christmas tart.

The baked creations were then judged and prizes were awarded to the best pie and the best tart. Rupert White took top place with his mince pies while Ann Kay produced the best tart.

Tiggy Parry, director of HALFF and one of the judges, said: “It was great to see such a brilliant turn out and so many people had put so much effort into their bakes. The standard was extremely high.
