The Street Café at St Wilfrid’s is famous locally for its scones. On Thursday 24th October we will be holding our annual scone day, take a look at how you can get involved.

Our place...

Follow us on social media in the run up to the day to take part in our competition to design a new flavour of scone. The winning entry will be available for purchase at The Street Café on scone day.

...or yours

Hold your own scone day event. 

Invite your family and friends for a scone-themed afternoon tea or morning coffee event and ask them to make a donation.

If you are involved with a school, community group or business why not run a scone sale, tea, or bake-off event? Our fundraising team are on hand to provide advice and support, collection buckets and other resources so do get in touch.

Bake the perfect scone

We've asked the team here at St Wilfrid's, and our friends at the WI to give us their best scone recipes. Pick your favourite and get baking!

Mikey's cheese scones

250g self-raising flour
Pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 tsp mustard powder
80g butter
160g mature cheddar, grated
115ml whole milk
1 egg


  1. Heat the oven to 160°C. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Mix together the flour, salt, pepper and mustard powder. Rub in the butter.
  3. Stir in the cheese and then the milk and egg to get a soft dough.
  4. Turn onto a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round 2cm/¾in thick.
  5. Use a 5cm/2in cutter to stamp out rounds and place on the baking sheet. Lightly knead together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones to use it all up.
  6. Sprinkle a little grated cheese on the top of each scone. Bake for 18 minutes until well risen and golden. Cool on a wire rack.
