PUPILS in Fordingbridge were joined by Great British Bake Off star Maggie Richardson.

Known as ‘Seaside Baker’ from the popular TV series, Maggie took time out from her schedule to spend some time with Year 5 at Fordingbridge Junior School.

Healthy homemade pizzas were the dish of the day

Maggie taught the children how to make pizza dough who said she was “so fun and playful and will always help if you are stuck”.

“It was an amazing experience working with Maggie,” said one of the pupils.

A spokesperson for the junior school said: “Everyone had a great day and possibly someone could do what Maggie did and participate in the Bake Off.

“Everyone in Year 5 would like to say a huge thank you to Maggie for her time, kindness and inspirational spirit. We loved having you with us for the day and hope to see you again soon.”
