Pocklington Trust

We had a good baking day at The Pocklington Trust in Stourbridge.  Based at The Mary Stephen’s Centre (behind the hospice), working with partially sighted people.  Warmly received, it was a real treat to come here and be part of people’s day.  Meeting new people and having a chatty group really warmed us.    Very touched to see different ages engaged and immersed in the process.  We made spelt wholemeal rolls and loaves – many flour clouds but not too many ‘snowmen’ left the room….

We focused on the textures and smells – used crunchy salt and warm honey liquid –   I want to get my hands on some speaking scales!  Now that would really be useful for all ages and also alot of fun for the disabled kids we work with.


Mary from ‘bakemehappy’ in Wolverhampton came to support as did Mark from The ‘Y’ Project in Stourbridge.   Both did such a fabulous job – full of gentle energy which filled the room… Also fantastic washing up!!!  Truly appreciated…

We hope more work with people here – is lovely and as ever the smell of bread baking fills the whole building!  Everyone benefits!!
