Newtongrange Primary School PTA held its ‘Big Bake’ event last weekend, with treats aplenty on show at Newtongrange Church Hall.

Locals baking skills were judged by panel of judges from the school made up by headteacher Vicky Morgan, teacher Ross Lyle, dinner lady Madge Richardson and community representative Lyn Ross.

Tricia Mcnicol, Newtongrange Primary PTA chairperson, said: “On one of the most beautiful spring days of the year so far, the hopeful bakers arrived from 10am to submit their delicious entries. There was a happy buzz within the church hall as the each submission was given a number for the blind judging to come.

“As the judges arrived they were ushered into another room so they didn’t see the entries.

“Eventually the judges had come to their final decisions and the winners were announced to rapturous claps and cheers, and the presentation of their ‘Star Baker’ wooden spoons.

“It was a great community event that brought a lovely atmosphere with people milling around chatting, and children happily playing.
