Learn bread baking skills at Navenby for charity

Fans of the Great British Bake-off - or those who simply want to try their hands at bread-making, should get down to a special workshop next month.

What's on.
What's on.

Kneading, proving and baking are all part of baker Pete Welbourne’s skillset and he’s ready to show an audience how to make the perfect loaf.

Former owner of the award-winning Welbourne’s Bakery in Navenby, Pete is hosting a ‘Bread Make, Bake and Taste’ event in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust. This takes place at The Venue, on Grantham Road, on Saturday, March 12, 10am-2pm.

Pete is a third-generation baker who regularly gives baking demonstrations across the county and beyond.

He said. “People will be able to see just how easy making bread can be. We’ve been making it here for more than 100 years, so we know what we’re doing. Now we can pass those skills on to people who want to make their own.” He added: “It’s all for a good cause and if we raise some funds from such an enjoyable day then that’s fantastic.”

Tickets are £10 for adults, £5 for under-12s. Call 01522 811288 or pop into the bakery at 38 High Street, Navenby.
