We’ve been open for just over a month now, and we’ve been overwhelmed by the way the community have embraced our little Bakehouse on Stoneham Road. We love the fact that children check out what’s happening at the bakery on the way to school, and that people just pop their heads in to say hello.
We’re baking more and more each week to keep up with the demand. It seems our cinnamon buns have kind of gone viral, with people queueing on Fridays and Saturdays before 10 to get their hands on some. Our official hours have us opening at 10am, which is to ensure we have everything out of the oven by that point, but if we have bread out of the oven you can always pop in to buy a loaf or two.
Our mission has always been to nourish the community, through providing good bread, but also supporting the community’s wellbeing through breadmaking. We’ve started to run our workshops on a Tuesdays and Wednesdays at the Bakehouse, and we’ve got sessions with Rise UK, Young Carers, and local Brownies groups coming up in the next few weeks. For those of you wanting to learn to bake, there are workshop dates on our website, as well as our Eventbrite page, and more dates will be added soon. Our workshops are relaxed, and we always have time to chat and eat some of what we bake.
