Community cooks up a celebration of summer

26 March 2019

Bakers at a Milton Keynes housing development have got their whisks at the ready in preparation for their very own ‘Great British Bake Off’.

Bakers at a Milton Keynes housing development have got their whisks at the ready in preparation for their very own ‘Great British Bake Off’.

Residents at Oakridge Park have been challenged by developer Charles Church to put their baking skills to the test on Saturday 1st September, when they will present their decorated cakes on the theme of ‘Summer 2012’.

A panel of judges will appraise the cakes on appearance, taste and use of the theme, with the competition being split into two categories – under 18s and over 18s.

Judging will take place at the Charles Church Marketing Suite on Selkirk Drive, Stantonbury, at 1pm with the winners each receiving John Lewis gift vouchers and an Oakridge Park Bake-off trophy.

Claire Lambert, head of sales at Charles Church (Midlands) said: “It’s important to us that maintain close links with our residents at Oakridge Park and hosting a baking competition provides a fun excuse to get together, to boost community spirit further.

“As the school holidays will be drawing to a close, we hope to see some sweet interpretations of the theme ‘Summer 2012’. After all, we’ve had the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the Olympics, long sunny days and all that rain – so there have been lots of things to spark the imagination!

“The day promises an excellent opportunity for people to catch up and make new friends.”

The competition is only open to residents at Charles Church Oakridge Park, with competitors asked to pre-register, but the public are welcome to attend the day.
