The Village Bakers Committee work tirelessly behind the scenes in the name of truth, love and pastry.
James Maynard – Chair
I joined Village Bakers in November 2012 when it was originally started by our founder and previous Chair Kevin Sargent. I was on the Committee from the start looking after Events. In 2016, I took a brief break from the Committee before re-joining in 2017 as Chair.
Village Baker’s means a lot to me because of the great friends I have made through our shared love of Cake and baked goods, and I met partner at Village Baker’s too!!
Lea Madgwick – Vice-Chair
Speciality: Themed Cakes
Hi my name is Lea and I am currently the Vice Chair. I have been a member of the Village Bakers for 5 years. I have made some wonderful friends at the Bakers and as I am a long way from my family they have all become part of my family. I love to bake .. anything, sweet or savoury.. but I suppose my specialty is themed cakes. I love the wow feeling when I present my bakes and I enjoy sharing my bakes with friends and family x
Laura White – Secretary
Stuart Williams – Treasurer
Will Morriss – Media & PR
Speciality: Gingerbread men
I joined the Village Bakers in January 2015, I’d heard about the group through friends but never found the time to attend meetings for various reasons. In December 2014 I met my partner Kevin who encouraged me to attend the meetings and I’ve not looked back. I went on the assist the committee and then joined the committee in February 2016 to organise the events for the group.
Tim Lewis – Events & Community Engagement
I joined Village Bakers in February 2016, and have since joined the committee to look after our membership. I have always enjoyed baking and eating different foods so having a group for this is great. Because of The Village Bakers I’ve learnt more about how to bake things and sampling other people’s bakes is literally the icing on the cake!
