Bakers in Wickham Market have been stepping up their scone-making skills in order to raise money for the village.
In 2018, four volunteers managed to bake a total of 503 scones as they tried to raise money for renovations to the village hall.
This year the group brought on board a fifth member to try and up the amount of scones they were able to produce in the day.
In total this year the group managed to bake 25 different kinds of scones, producing 696 scones in total on the day.
Among the more unusual flavours on offer were cherry bakewell, goats cheese, orange marmalade, cheese and marmite and treacle and sultana.

"Once again, demand was high and requests for particular flavours were being baked as quickly as possible.
"We started with a 16kg bag of flour, kindly donated by Farmhouse Cooking, and when that ran out we bought up all the self raising flour from the Co-op store next door."
