A Great British Bake-Off star is coming to Chipping Norton, and everyone’s invited.

Val Stones, contestant in the 2016 series, will be sharing her top baking tips at Watson Place Retirement Living next month.

Known as the ‘Cake Whisperer’, Ms Stones will be showing how to make some Easter treats before producing a showstopper.

She said: “Easter is a great time for everyone to get involved with baking no matter what their experience is.

“There are so many different recipes and bakes people can do and I hope I can share all of things I have learnt with them.

“I’m really looking forward to this Easter and event and meeting the people at Watson Place.”

Attendees will be able to ask all their baking questions and take a picture with the Bake Off contestant.

Cheryl Bissett, divisional sales and marketing director for McCarthy Stone, said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Val to Watson Place for an afternoon of Easter baking.

“We’re all looking forward seeing her in action and getting some inspiration for brightening up our traditional recipes ready to treat visitors during the Easter holidays.

“We’d like to invite local retirees in the area to join us – not only will they have the chance to meet Val and sample her amazing bakes, but they can also get to know our team here at Watson Place.”

The event will take place at the development on Trinity Road on April 7, from 2pm to 4pm.

Anyone wishing to attend is asked to book in advance by calling 0800 201 4811.
