A busy few weeks

The last few weeks have been very busy at the bakery with lots of events on top of the day to day running of operations.

A few weeks ago we were delighted to judge and sponsor the Poynton Bake Off at the Poynton Methodist church.  Scott worked his way through a wide range of delicious cakes, canapés and other goodies along with one of Poynton’s Great British Bake Off stars, Ruth Clemens.  The fantastic winning team, the Victory Girls, who had created a wonderful spread in celebration of the WWII victory anniversary, will be treated to a baking masterclass from Scott later in the year.

The same week, we got the chance to visit the beautiful Gorton Monastery as part of a local community organisation’s annual conference. We were taking part in their promotion of local food producers and as a potential supplier of their cafe development in Cheadle Hulme. We met loads of lovely people and the bread samples went down a treat!

More recently, we had the pleasure of being part of the fabulous Bramhall Duck Race as sponsors of the Great Bramhall Bake Off.  Yet again, as chief judge, Scott got to spend a hard afternoon eating cake!

The quality of the cakes entered into the Bake Off by the Bramhall public were amazing and it was great to be part of such a well organised and well supported community event, even in the cold and damp!  The winners also received the chance to spend a day in the bakery with Scott.

We have also squeezed in a couple of talks to community groups and have loads more coming up later in the year.

We are now looking forward to the Bramhall festival coming up on 13 June. We will be out and about with a market stall (as well as in the bakery as normal) with some vintage inspired treats, vouchers and other goodies.  Come and see us and join in the fun of the festival.
