St James’ Church is holding a Jubilee Cake Festival competition to decorate a cake in honour of the Queen, to feature in their community fete on Friday June 2, 10am-2pm.

But there is a twist, as spokesman Sue Taylor explained: “This could be a real baked and decorated cake or made out of junk materials such as cardboard, polystyrene, paper, the choices are endless; it’s up to you as long as it looks like a cake and celebrates the Queen’s Jubilee.

“A note will be displayed with each cake stating which group/individual has decorated it.”

Sue added: “We held a Royal cake festival for the Queen’s 90th Birthday in 2016 which was a great success and we hope that the whole of the Wetherby community will get involved once again.”

The church fete will also take on a royal theme to join in the celebrations of the Queen’s 70-year reign.

Anyone who wants more information about the competition or wishes to have a stall at the fete on June 2, as an individual or as a member of a group, £15 per trestle table, should contact Jean Heaton [email protected] (07866 366314) or Sue Taylor [email protected] (07707 665171).
