Whatever is happening in the world of Bake Off, there was plenty of baking going on around Rugby ahead of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning last Friday - or other days nearby.

Once again, Rugby folk showed their generous nature whether serving or consuming in such a good cause.

Avon Valley students held a baking competition at the school and sold their cakes for charity the following day, raising a total of £135.

There was a neighbourly effort in Regent Place as Janet Hyde, Zoe Millington and Rob Ripley from John Taylor Funeral Service championed the efforts of Ally Colledge and Emma Wells from Moriarty’s.

Meanwhile a month-long effort at M&S at Elliott’s Field raised £1,850 and there was a regular flow of customers to sample the range of cakes at the Fighting Cocks pub in Bilton.
