It’s been around eight months since our blog post about Covid-19 rearing its ugly head, and now we’re back in another Lockdown. Lockdown 3. Before March last year nobody had even heard of a ‘lockdown’ and yet now it has become part of everyday life, which is pretty sad. Most people would agree that 2020 was a terrible year; socially, economically, emotionally, politically. But for us there were a few positive things to come from the worst year on record, mainly the opening of our new shop in Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol…
We started working on the shop in the summer of 2020, clearing out everything left by the previous bakery*. Once the shop was just an empty shell, we started to re-build it from the floor up. Having designed the shop ourselves, we spent many hours fixing together scaffold boards for shelving, painting walls, choosing lights and so on. Finally, on the 15th of December we were ready to launch, just in time for Christmas.
We are so pleased with how the new shop has been received by the lovely people of Westbury on Trym and we already seem to have a regular following, with familiar faces (behind masks) coming in daily for bread, doughnuts, pastries and more. It’s fantastic to have a shop in Bristol and it’s a big step forward into the city for us folk from the sticks.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last year and to all our new customers in Westbury on Trym, we look forward to serving you for many years to come.
We have big plans for 2021, including opening another shop in Bristol in a more central location… Watch this space.
