The Purton Parish Council will be hosting a community bake off event this April, in celebration of the King's upcoming Coronation in May.

The bake off event will be held on Saturday 29 April at the Purton Village Hall. 

The competition is open to all ages, and entrants must complete and return their entry forms to the parish council by 4pm on Friday 14 April. 

The bake off is free to enter, and the winner for each category will receive a certificate and a small prize. Everyone who enters will also receive a small Coronation commemorative gift.  

Pear-based recipes are being welcomed in particular by the panel, because of the village's previous name 'Peartree Village', and local production of fruit. 

The bakes will be judged by age group, and different categories. Little chefs (aged under 11 years old) will also be able to enter decorated biscuits or cakes on the same day. 

Once registered to take part, bakers must make their cupcakes, shortbread, or pear-based bake at home, and then deliver them to the Village Hall on Saturday 29 April at 9am. 

Following the judging, the baked goods will be raffled off to attendees, in order to raise funds for the village's Community Fridge. 

Entry forms for the bake off competition can be found online at The parish council are reminding members of the public that they only need to complete and return page 7. 

The entry forms can be returned electronically by email, as a PDF or JPEG image to [email protected]

Those wishing to work with paper forms can call 01793 771 824. Paper versions of the forms can be returns to the council office or council office post box. The deadline for paper forms is also 14 April.
