Might cheese-rollers enjoy a gift hamper?
Published on 04/05/2010

Entrants in a cheese rolling event might like to remember the activity by receiving a gift hamper.

The 51st annual Cheese Rolling Festival took place in Stilton, near Peterborough on May 3rd, the area's Evening Telegraph newspaper reports.

Thousands of individuals from across the country came to the small village to mark the occasion, which sees teams roll a wooden wheel, or "cheese", along Stilton High Street.

Winners of the ladies competition were the Yorkshire Belles, who took home the prizes of a trophy, Stilton cheese and wine.

Alison Lindsey, one of the teams' competitors, said: "We never expected to win, but we just wanted to have some fun."

After the race, a number of musical performers took centre stage, including X Factor contestant Nicole Lawrence.

It was recently reported that the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Leagram Organic Dairy will be holding a cheese-making demonstration as part of Lancashire's Picnic Month in May.
