Amateur marmalade-makers are warned they have only one week left to submit entries to a festival dedicated to Paddington Bear's favourite spread.

The Marmalade Awards are being held at the Dalemain Estate, near Penrith in Cumbria on 12 and 13 February.

The event, now in its sixth year, has already attracted entries from around the UK and as far afield as Canada.

There are a number of categories, proceeds go to charity, and the closing date for entries is 6 February.

Anyone can enter, so long as they have made the marmalade themselves, and judging is monitored by The Cumbria-Cumberland Federation of Women's Institutes.

The winning recipe will be made up and sold by the prestigious London store, Fortnum and Mason.
