Residents of Harry Priestley House including Denise Broadbent and David Jepson cooked up their favourite recipes.

As a nation, it is estimated we each eat around 36 pies a year on average.

Most of us can’t resist a homemade pie and to mark British Pie Week from 7-13 March, residents at the RMBI Care Company Home made their favourites.

Denise Broadbent and David Jepson made pies for Pie Week.

Staff organised a baking session, where some of the residents shared their favourite recipes and made mince and onion pies, cheese and onion pies and apple pies for those who fancied a sweet treat.

Home Manager, Anne Stobart, said: “Food plays an important part in our care home and our residents thoroughly enjoy getting involved in food related events. British Pie Week provides a great opportunity to bring our residents together through their mutual love of food.”
