Local business woman Wednesday Batchelor from Unicorn Cakery and Delectables in Wymondham won top prize in South Norfolk Council’s Victoria Sponge Bake Off competition.
Her prosecco soaked Victoria sponge, with white chocolate buttercream and homemade cherry jam had the judges heading back for seconds and thirds when the competition ran earlier in the month at South Norfolk on Show.
Having quit her job in May as a facilities manager to spend more time with her one-year-old daughter Isabella, Wednesday was keen to raise the profile of her new business.
South Norfolk Council has teamed up with Bressingham Steam and Gardens to give away a family annual pass to this popular tourist attraction.
The competition is part of the Council’s drive to promote tourism in the area. South Norfolk Council’s Deputy Leader Michael Edney said: “South Norfolk has so much to offer whether you’re here on holiday, just visiting for the day, or a local looking for something a little different."
Thousands of people enjoyed the best of what South Norfolk has to offer at South Norfolk Council’s biggest show of the year on Sunday.
The Council’s HQ in Long Stratton was packed with people enjoying the fantastic entertainment, children’s activities and local food and craft stalls.
This is the eighth year that the Council has promoted its services through a spectacular day of entertainment for all the family.
Keen swimmer, Noah Harris was in a spin to find out that he had won South Norfolk Council’s competition to name the Swim School Turtle.
Four year old Noah, from Cringleford, thought the turtle should be named Turbo, and the judges all agreed.
Noah and his mum Rebecca collected his prize of six months Swim School membership from Councillor Yvonne Bendle, who said. “Congratulations to Noah for coming up with such a splendid name for our turtle. Swim School is a great success, with over a thousand members at our leisure centres in Diss and Wymondham"
