Outings in October 2014

Two recent outings have included a theatre trip to see “The Full Monty” which six members thoroughly enjoyed and a trip to Papworth Hospital for a snack lunch, followed by a talk about the future of the hospital and then our doughty bargain hunters made tracks to the Gift Shop to snap up some of the wonderful Christmas items which have newly arrived in stock.

Meeting – 15th October 2014 – Gunn Bakery

What an aromatic evening we had at our October meeting.  As soon as David Gunn walked into the room with his cartons of freshly baked bread, there was a delicious smell in the room.

He regaled us with some tales of his ancestors.  His father and grandfather were both bakers although baking was only a hobby for his father.  David’s grandfather used to deliver his bread by horse and cart.

David used to go to the bakery after school and later went to college for bakery for 3 years.  His establishment was visited by many well-known cooks, for example Ainsley Herriot and Jamie Oliver.  he caters for parties for children and adults too.  The evening was rounded off with tasters of two different breads and to cap it all he cut up some of his famous Bedfordshire clangers to taste.  Delicious!  And as a bonus we were able to take some bread home.  All in all an enjoyable evening.
