Warm­ing up for bake-off at school

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Staff, pupils, par­ents and friends of Maid­stone Gram­mar School for Girls are busy prac­tis­ing ahead of the third Great School Bake-Off chal­lenge.

The PTFA has or­gan­ised an af­ter­noon of tea and cakes from 2pm to 4pm, along with a “vin­tage cafe”, for Satur­day.

A num­ber of pri­mary schools will also be vis­it­ing and will be able to take a tour of the school’s wartime air-raid shel­ters.

There are seven bak­ing classes this year, rang­ing from six in­di­vid­ual cakes to a loaf of bread, with a spe­cial cat­e­gory for pri­mary school en­trants.

The en­tries will be judged by a panel to in­clude head teacher Deb­o­rah Stan­ley and her pre­de­ces­sor Mary Smith.

Af­ter judg­ing, all the en­tries go on sale in the vin­tage cafe.

The pub­lic are wel­come to turn up and join in the fun, which will in­clude a cock­ney sing-along with Tom Car­ra­dine.
