Marmalade maker Lynne Allan, who runs Lady Waterford Preserves at the Old Dairy Concept Store in Ford, has won a bronze award in The World’s Original Marmalade Competition.

She went back in history 500 years to create a special Flodden marmalade to commemorate the famous battle, which took place in 1513 and beat competition from accredited marmalade makers throughout the United Kingdom and abroad to win third place in the Any Citrus Marmalade category at Dalemain House in Cumbria.

“Once again we are delighted to take a bronze at this amazing marmalade festival,” said Lynne.

“We entered three years ago and won silver for our Lady Waterford’s Marmalade with Chips and since then the competition has got even stiffer. The artisan section is a hard fought and highly prized section of the competition with the likes of the Ludlow Food Centre taking part and a host of other excellent marmalade makers.”
