Paralympic judge for pie competition
Double Paralympic gold medallist Hannah Cockroft was the guest judge for this year’s Pork Pie Appreciation Society’s charity competition, which has been running for the past 21 years.
The competition, held at the Old Bridge Inn, Ripponden in Yorkshire last Saturday (20 April) raised more than £3,000 for the Forget-me-not Childrens’ Hospice, Huddersfield, which was chosen by Cockroft.
Peter Mellors from Mellors of Newark came away with the winning prize in the traditional class, for the first time, after having entered the competition for the past 10 years.
The competition aims to look for small pork pies, between four and six ounces. Mellors said: "Nearly all of them have been won by companies, but this time it was me."
Broster’s Farm Shop in Huddersfield won the artisan category, sponsored by agricultural supplies firm Harry Travis.
