Cherry pie is pick of the crop at festival
7:50am Sunday 18th August 2013 in Local
THOUSANDS of visitors flocked to Bewdley Museum to celebrate the town’s historical relationship with cherries.
Almost 6,000 people attended the two day Bewdley Cherry Festival and enjoyed music, crafts and all things cherry.
There were songs in the museum garden, activities, stalls and cherry produce, including cherries for sale and special Georgian cherry treats.
A cherry pie competition was also held and judged by Bewdley mayor Linda Candlin.
Residents Clare Goldbourne and Mark Payne, of the Little Pack Horsepub, took the top prize for their joint effort.
Their cherries were slow cooked in Italian brandy with a frangipane base and topped with marzipan lattice.
Conservative councillor Ian Hardiman, Wyre Forest District Council’s cabinet member for community wellbeing, said: “The weekend was absolutely fantastic and there were huge crowds of almost 6,000, which is very impressive.
“Our museum development officer Alison Bakr worked really hard to make this event a success and well done to her and the team for doing just that.”
