Pickling onions are flying off the shelves in the Isle of Wight as competitors prepare for the annual Pickle Wars which will take place at the Woodvale Hotel, Gurnard on Sunday January 28.

The contest, which started as a bit of fun 17 years ago, has become a real fixture in the Isle of Wight calendar, not to mention a fantastic fundraiser for Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF) as customers try around 50 different types of pickled onions in the search for the Pickle King or Queen.

Those who are daunted by the prospect of making or tasting pickles can support the cause by donating raffle prizes and auction lots.

The Pickle Wars tasting will take place at the Woodvale Hotel on Sunday January 28 from 12 noon.

If you would like to take part or donate a raffle prize or auction lot please call the Woodvale Hotel on 01983 292037 or Terry Ashdown on 07726297359.
