Today we were meant to be celebrating the opening of the re-furbished public space at the Bakers Arms junction with our bread stall, but the event was cancelled last minute. It’s raining so actually not complaining after the chill winds on Saturday’s Growing Communities Market. Still a busy day we’ve delivered a batch of loaves including 100% wholemeal spelt sourdough and Pain au levain to the Mill for the fundraiser with Walthamstow’s Food bank, Eat or Heat. Our bread is accompanying the pea, pak choi & pesto soup knocked up by Nat and the crew. If you are about the last Wednesday of April then come down and see what soup/bread combination awaits.
Raju from the Hornbeam Bakers Collective held a workshop for the ‘Community Clean Up’ event at Priory Court Community Centre.
The aim of the day was to bring the Community together to help with lots of planned activities around reuse, recycling and skills sharing (whilst saving money) in and around the Community Centre at Priory Court. There were lots of indoor and outdoor activities with lots of hungry people at lunchtime, including the mayor Nadeem Ali and local residents, who ate bread made by Raju and the bread making participants as well as wholesome soup made by Ruth from the Hornbeam Cafe,
We also handed out recipes with what to do with left over bread. Please email us if you would like a copy!
