As the world tuned in to the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Sochi last Sunday, another global event was getting under way.

The 12th annual World Clootie Dumpling Championship took place in Avonbridge Parish Church last weekend with the competition growing more popular with budding bakers every year.

And while it was all downhill skiing in Russia, it was all uphill for 88-year-old great granny Nancy McComb who stormed her way to the Clootie Dumpling title with her delicious family recipe. It’s the second time Nancy has won the championship, already a winner in 2009.
