THE first Shotgun and Chelsea Bun Club event in Somerset will take place near Cheddar on Saturday, December 1.

Founded by Victoria Knowles- Lacks, judge at the inaugural Great Burnham Bake Off in September, the club is a unique ladies only introduction to clay shooting and baking.

The day at Brook Bank Shooting Club will include an instructor-led session of shooting a variety of targets before the ladies reconvene in the clubhouse for tea and homemade cake.

Beverley and Sarah Milner Simonds, South-West representatives for the club, said: “There is an element of competition as the score cards are counted up and there is a prize for the highest scoring ladies and a rosette for the best cake.

“The ladies are encouraged to show off their baking skills and bring a cake along.”

The club is open to all girls who are big enough to hold a gun, with the lower age limit normally at 12.

The event starts at 10.45am and costs £45 to include 30 cartridges and clays and the hire of guns and safety equipment. Places are limited and booking is essential.
