The future generation of Salvation Army bakers produced perfect pancakes under expert guidance.

Pancake professional Margaret Raeside helped Brooke Oxborrow, 12, and Tianna McMillan, 13, make enough of the flat round cakes to feed an army last Saturday.

As well as honing their baking skills in the kitchen, the girls served tables of visitors in the hall.

In addition to freshly flipped pancakes and perfectly packaged home-baking, trinkets and gifts, created at the church’s Make and Munch craft group, were also for sale.

The event raised £154.29 for church funds.
