In November 2012, Kevin Sargent came up with a fabulous recipe:
1. Take a group of friendly people who share an amateur interest in baking
2. Provide a comfortable central location one Sunday every month
3. Ask people to bring their own baked goods
4. Mix gently and allow friendships to develop
And so began the Village Bakers, meeting regularly at The Molly House.
We’re a social group, where members can meet up and chat to friends (new and old); share their latest culinary creation (if they have one) and sample baked delights (both sweet and savoury!). The wine is optional.
The baking isn’t competitive – or obligatory – and we have members with a wide range of baking abilities (just look at our current Vice-Chair!). Members are also eligible to receive a membership card, giving them discounts in various Village venues.
What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon?
