“Girl-Power” swept the awards at our District Young Chef Final 2019.
RC Congleton not only hosted a splendid Competition, but they also tooktook First Place.

Daisy McAllister calmly edged herself into winning, following her 1st Place in
Qualifying Heat One, last November. A great achievement !

RC Frodsham, and Helsby student Paula McCallum, took 2nd place, after her School had taken a “time-out” last year. Some comeback!

RC Ramsbottom had 3 Woodhey High contestants entered, showing strength in numbers, after an amazing initial School entry of 100 plus would-be
Young Chefs. So Amelia Tweddle in 3rd place, was indeed …hard-earned!

Judges again experienced an extremely close Competition, requiring full use of the extensive marking sheet,to finally separate them.

These three girls now progress into the Rotary Regional Final on Saturday 16th March at Kendal College. “Our Districts1285 Girl-Power Team!”
With a very good chance of snatching the 1st place (only) entry into the National Final at Leeds City Centre College. on 27th April 2019.

But credit is due to all our District Final Team, who put on a superb Competition, for all to watch, and later taste, their quality cooking.

Youngest Finalist was 12yr old Niamb OKelly from Hope Academy, Spencer Collins from Woodhey High, and Mollie-mae Hodson also 13 ,(who was
ill, and sadly missed the event), but still deserved her trophy. Will King, Helsby High, and Harrison Humby, Woodhey, also fought the boys corner admirably, and
Zainab Azam, RC Radcliffe and Derby High,was an impressive first-year finalist.
