A creative young foodie has seen his own apron and shopping bag go on sale.

As part of The Ashley Centre’s hugely popular free Food and Baking Festival last year, youngsters were invited to take part in a ‘design an apron’ competition.

The chosen winner was Adam Burton, 12, from West Ewell, whose design has been made into an apron and a limited edition shopping bag, which is available from Quest in the Epsom shopping mall.

David Beddows, general manager, said: "We were delighted with the entries we received for this competition but the judges all agreed that Adam’s design was the clear winner.

"He had obviously spent a lot of time and effort on his entry, and we particularly liked the fact that he had included an image of the clocktower, Epsom’s iconic landmark."
