Thank you to those of you have been buying flour over the last month or so, and for those who came down to the Bakehouse on Friday to buy bread. After a successful trial bake on Friday morning, we’ve decided to return with a two bake week. It’s still not the case that we’re back to normal, but we will be able to have most of the breads we normally bake. In order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our team, two of us will be baking on Thursday and Saturday mornings; with bread available from 10-1pm after everything is prepared for serving our customers.
We’ll still be selling flour though, so come down on Thursday or Saturday mornings to restock your flour supplies. We’ve loved seeing so many of you baking whilst we’ve been closed, and want to encourage you to continue to do so.
Whilst our customers have been baking at home, so have members of our Bread Shed group. We can’t get together to bake at the moment, but we can bake together through the magic of video and Zoom. As older members of the community, many of the group are more at risk of isolation than before, so we’ve been delivering flour to their homes, and connecting via video and WhatsApp to bake together virtually. As one of our participants said:
“It’s making a real difference, it’s something really positive in my week.”
