We’re back baking after our summer break, with the Bakehouse open for bread sales Thursday-Saturday. We’re also continuing our work with the community; with our BreadShed and Baking & Bereavement projects continuing. It’s a busy time at the Bakehouse as we’re also part of the Ageing Well Festival, offering a chance to join a baking for wellbeing group at our Bakehouse on Stoneham Road.
It’s the Summer holidays (although the weather gods don’t seem to know this), and so we’re going to be taking a break at the end of August to recharge the batteries, spend some time with families and friends, and reset for the Autumn. Our last bake of the Summer is Saturday 12th August, so maybe look to stock up when you get the chance.
We’re zooming towards Easter, and so it’s time to open the online ordering for Hot Cross Buns. As is traditional at Stoneham Bakehouse, we’ll only be baking these on Good Friday (7th April), so if you want to secure yourself some of our delicious buns, you can order in advance through the Buy Bread section of the website.
We’ll be following our usual pattern of taking a break over the Easter period, allowing our team to spend time with their family and friends, recoup energy, but also to do bit of maintenance at the Bakehouse. We’ll be back baking on Thursday 20th April with all our usual breads, bagels, and buns.
As we enter Advent we’re pleased to let you know that we’ll be taking orders for our last bake before Christmas (Thursday 23rd December). Visit our Buy Bread section to see what’s available – we’ve got all the usuals, plus our Stollen Buns. We’re only going to baking bread to order, so get your orders in so you’re not disappointed.
We can also try to focus on being generous with our time and attention rather than money – it’s free and better for everyone, as well as our planet! Here’s a great calendar of random acts of kindness for December from our friends Action For Happiness.
After our last bake on the 23rd December, we’ll be taking a break over the Christmas and New Year period, returning to baking on Thursday 6th January 2022.
