De­li­cious bakes at dis­abil­ity group’s bake-off

Bray People - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

ONE of the im­por­tant things about Christ­mas is, ob­vi­ously, cake.

The Great Christ­mas Bake Off was held re­cently in Shore­line, Grey­stones, with the town’s cooks bay­ing for the prover­bial blood on the day.

Judges Kate Doyle, Luan Parle and Cathaoir­leach Tom For­tune were on hand with the nice job of de­cid­ing who would win this year’s prizes.

DAG: T (Dis­abil­ity Ac­tion Grey­stones-To­gether) or­gan­ised the event for the sec­ond year run­ning.

The cat­e­gories were Most De­li­cious, Most Beau­ti­ful, Most Quirky, and another cat­e­gory for chil­dren.

Chil­dren were asked to bring along cook­ies, cakes or muffins for their com­pe­ti­tion.

Win­ners and run­ners up were de­lighted to take home the cov­eted tro­phies, rosettes and cer­tifi­cates for the pres­ti­gious contest.

There was also a fan­tas­tic raf­fle on the day.

The Happy Pear and Grey’s cafe also par­tic­i­pated in the judg­ing.

It was a great day for chil­dren and adults alike with a fab­u­lous range of cakes and treats.

There was a won­der­ful turnout for the com­mu­nity event.

DAG:T is a group of dis­abled and non-dis­abled peo­ple who are work­ing to­gether to make Grey­stones a place that ev­ery­one can en­joy.

They aim to make the whole of Grey­stones a ‘Gold Star’ town, in other words ac­ces­si­ble and in­clu­sive for ev­ery­one.

The Grey­stones Gold Star awards will ac­knowl­edge busi­nesses and com­mu­nity groups that take steps to make their busi­nesses and fa­cil­i­ties more ac­ces­si­ble.

Sim­i­lar schemes have al­ready been very suc­cess­ful in Cashel and Wex­ford..

The group said that par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses will ben­e­fit by at­tract­ing new cus­tomers.
