A special mention goes to Debbie Collinge of the Lord Nelson Public House Luddenden. Debbie baked a huge pulled pork pie. The Organising Committee tucked in to it after the event. It was acclaimed as delicious by all the diners.
Debbie's pie was a winner but could not be judged against the other entrants due to it's size.
