The knickerbocker glory dessert was dreamed up by Sarah Long, manager of the farms coffee shop, using local ingredients from Priory Farm Shop and is being sold to support St Catherines Hospice, with 50p from every sale being donated to the charity.


My involvement with the charity goes back a long way, when the hard work and vision of many local people enabled it to succeed, said Dame Judi.


During the actresses visit to the farm, she presented St Catherines with a cheque for over 2,000, raised by the farm and its customers through a range of fundraising ventures.


I love Priory Farm and have been shopping here for years, she said. In fact, the farm shop has helped me out with many a dinner party when I have pretended I have made the food myself.


Melanie Bushe, whose parents John and the late Wendy Shinner bought Priory Farm in 1957, hosted the visit.
