IT was a tasty triumph for Helensburgh woman Angela Pearson on Sunday when she took the honours in the Grand John Logie Baird Sandwich Competition final.

The entrants came from far and near and the five finalists chosen to compete for the honours by Sarah Parker, chef at the Logie Baird pub in Helensburgh, had come up with some fascinating sandwich ideas.

The competition was run jointly by the Helensburgh and Lomond Homecoming committee, the Helensburgh Advertiser and Your Radio and came about as the result of an idea by Friends of the Victoria Halls web designer Jim Chestnut who felt that the world famous BLT needed a run for its money!

The big final was kicked off with real razzmatazz by Your Radio team Billy Hamilton, Ryan and Dave Ross who were broadcasting live from the final.

Four out of the five finalists were able to attend with one unable to get to Helensburgh from his home in Dunoon.

The finalists were Bernie Hanley from Port Glasgow, Karen Harling from Paisley, Mairi Gallagher from Rhu, George Drummond from Dunoon and Angela.

The judges were chef Sarah Parker, Citizen of the Year Joan Mulroy and Advertiser editor David Carnduff.

And what a tough task it was. Each judge got to eat a complete sandwich and to share another.

After much deliberation the judges decided that Angela’s sandwich, containing chicken, haggis and melted cheese and described as a “real patriotic piece”, was the winner.

Angela was duly presented with the trophy - an antler handle bread knife on a display board, made by Martin Harper of The Gathering.

Angela, who lives in Cardross Road, said: “This is amazing. It’s brilliant. I invented the sandwich some time ago when I had a hangover and used what was in the house, stuck it on the George Foreman to toast it, and everybody loved it, even my son Anton who hates haggis!”
