We’ll be taking an extended summer break at the start of August, returning back in September with all our services operating. Like many businesses we have been impacted by the need to socially distance, staff illness and self isolations, and this has had a knock on effect on our plans to train and take on some essential new volunteers. With this in mind we’ve taken the decision to close our production baking a week or so earlier than our usual summer break in order to give us the opportunity to deliver some essential community workshops, host staff training, and in addition carry out some essential maintenance on the Bakehouse itself.
Taking a break will also enable us to recharge our batteries ready for the resumption of all of our groups, workshops, and usual baking times in September. We take wellbeing of staff and the community seriously, and the last few months have been exhausting at times. We’re very excited to be able to come back to a full programme of events in September, refreshed and ready to go.
In the meantime we’ll be baking as usual this week, with Thursday, Friday, and Saturday bakes. So, pop by and stock up on some of our delicious bread.
