A Harpenden family has been busy following a secret festive recipe containing more than 140 eggs.
St Nicholas Primary School’s parents association mixed the ingredients for 150 Christmas puddings for the community.
Pandemic restrictions meant for the first time in 40 years the puds might not be made.
Then the Martin family took on the task of mixing the recipe with nearly 50kg of dried fruit, 7kg of suet and 140 eggs.
The Old Cock pub offered to steam the puddings, and donations of apples and breadcrumbs came from YWAM and Simmons, with Waitrose stepping in to help at the last minute.
