Residents in Arnold are being invited to help put the town on the map with the creation of a perfect pie.
Organisers of the Arnold Pie Competition have cooked up the contest in the hope of finding the perfect recipe that will make the town famous for a savoury snack – like Melton Mowbray.
The competition takes place on Saturday, February 8 at Arnold Methodist Church between 11am-3pm and costs just £3.50 to enter.
A panel of judges has been assembled and they will put each pie to the taste test before announcing the winner.
Competition organiser Emlyn Mousley said: “You have the Bakewell Tart and the Melton Mowbray pork pie, why not the Arnold pie?
“The idea of the competition is to create a pie that Arnold can become famous for, a pie that everyone knows and can be proud of. It would also help drive visitors to the town and give an economic boost to Arnold. “
