A GIFT FROM THE WEST FOR CHELSEA PEN­SION­ERS

Western Daily Press - - Front Page -

THERE’S noth­ing bet­ter than a good piece of West Coun­try cheese over Christ­mas and the Chelsea Pen­sion­ers cer­tainly won’t be miss­ing out this year.

A huge con­sign­ment ar­rived yes­ter­day for the an­nual Cer­e­mony of the Christ­mas Cheeses.

More than a quar­ter of a tonne was do­nated by a num­ber of top cheese­mak­ers.

The cer­e­mo­nial cheese was a gi­ant 24kg wheel of Mont­gomery Ched­dar, from North Cad­bury in Som­er­set, and nearby cheese­maker Bar­bers also do­nated 8.5kg of its 1833 and ma­ture ched­dar range.

With 2018 mark­ing the cen­te­nary of the Ar­mistice, tribute was paid to the brave men and women who have given their lives in con­flict.

Dairy UK chair­man, Paul Ver­non, also high­lighted the role ched­dar ra­tions played in pro­vid­ing im­por­tant nu­tri­ents to sol­diers.
