Pie tasting for Community First Responders

Wednesday 10th December 2014 – 9am – Chris Kowalik.

Last year it was a sloe gin competition, this year the Temeside public house in Little Hereford hosted a pie-tasting contest to raise money for volunteer lifesavers.

Locals baked sweet and savoury pies for the event on Friday 5th December. People paid a fee and then had to taste and score each pie.

£100 was raised for Tenbury Community First Responders, a group of volunteers trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service in basic assessments and lifesaving techniques and who respond to medical emergencies nearby while a blue-light ambulance service vehicle is en-route.

Community First Responder Martin Bennett said: “The pies were exquisite! A brilliant evening was had by everyone. Many thanks to local retired businessman Mark Williams for organising the event.”
