Being a long standing member of The B.C.A. The B.S.B. and now President of the C.B.A. I am still active within the industry, having judged at many events over the years including The British Bakers, Britain's Best Loaf.
2021 was a fantastic year for me to remember as I was awarded the British Baker Outstanding Contribution to the Bakery Industry Award, this for me was the pinnacle achievement of my bakery career, I was so honoured but also humbled.
Being a great believer in craft skills I would like to think that I could influence the younger generation of bakers to take our wonderful industry forward, especially now with all that has happened in the last two years, as always the baker has found solutions as it has done in past times and are to be applauded for their resourcefulness, let us hope that now, as some normality resumes they will be rewarded by increased business.
