I’m new here, my name is Holly and i’m a freelance baker/pastry chef. I have lived in Forest Hill for 4 years, and love our little community.
I have been thinking about starting a community bakery to produce small quantities of breads, pastries, cakes etc for collection/delivery in our local area 2/3 days a week. I work at Little Bread Pedlar in Bermondsey a few days a week (at the moment!), but I am also currently producing small amounts of bread and pastries for people in my building. If i’m to make more, I will need more space than just my tiny flat!
I am hoping that someone might be able to push me in the right direction. If you know of a space that is empty in SE23 or nearby - a shop or even a production kitchen that is now sadly unused for the foreseeable, please do get in touch.
I have the skills and more importantly the flour (!), so I hope to be able to put them to good use in these tricky times…
Hope you’re all keeping well. In the meantime, whilst i’m baking from my flat, if anyone knows anyone vulnerable or in desperate need of bread, please do let me know!
