Six-year-old Jack Charlton was presented with a goodie bag of treats from Thomas the Baker after spinning a winning web design in the family bakery’s Halloween biscuit competition.

The Pickering Community Infant School pupil drew a super spider’s web design for Thomas’s creepy competition – which saw 80 entries from children attending the Ruffa Lane school.

Jack was rewarded with a giant-sized version of his design – made in biscuit – and a bag of other baked goodies.

Production manager Rob Campbell and general manager Simon Thomas tasked the four-to-six year olds with the eerie biscuit design contest on October 12 and then had the task of choosing a winner from a scary selection of witches, ghosts, tombstones and pumpkins.

“It was a very tough decision because the standard of the entries was so high,” said Rob. “But Jack Charlton won because of the detail of his design.

“He’d used lovely colours and his spider’s web was really neat and tidy.

“He’d clearly taken so much care and it really caught our eye.”
