A successful Bake Off at Garthorne Road Nature Reserve

The Friends of Garthorne Road held a very successful Bake Off. It was all in the aid of the reserve and the Friends will be buying some bat and bird boxes to enhance the biodiversity of the reserve. Two local businesses helped by providing taster, Sebastian Roche and The Honor Oak Provender. Sebastian Roche also kindly provided 2 trophies for the winners, one best bake and one best bake under 16.

There were a lot of delicious cakes on display!

A big thank you to the Friends who did some great work organising the event and being there on the day to make sure all went well.

Of course, thanks to everyone that baked a cake or came along to buy and taste. We made enough money to buy a few/bird and bat boxes and hopefully someone will take up residence soon!
