Well! We certainly knew the cricket world cup and the ashes were on this summer, Edgbaston is one of our larger customers and it was the knock-on effect as the whole country got behind the England team . . .  we won’t mention the Ashes at the moment . . . too soon! But it has been a great summer of cricket.

With so many BBQs and parties happening we had some huge days in the bakery, it was a bit like the football World Cup all over again with the media hype driving it.

We were fortunate that we have the best team in the West Midlands at John Dwyer Bakery and as usual they took it in their stride and the huge numbers were produced, packed and delivered!

Of course as is the food manufacturing and bakery business it doesn’t stop just turns the page over as soon as the summer winds down football, rugby and autumn starts to emerge, it’s getting darker earlier, Strictly on the telly it’s time for teacakes, thick sliced bread with warming stews and all that wintery stuff. . .
