This year’s entries were judged by Shan Jaehrig, from Sills and Betteridge and Gainsborough Town Partnership, Coun Lesley Rollings, also representing Gainsborough Academy, and Samantha Mellows, Gainsborough Town Manager.

Samantha said: “The Great Gainsborough Bake Off was a great success and the standard of entries was really high.”

“We thoroughly enjoyed judging the entries and thank everybody for taking part with a special well done to the winners.”

“We look forward to repeating the event in 2015.”
