Beautiful Bread Fit for a Queen

Under the direction of Mr Bun the Baker (Peter Gohegan) the Sandringham Kitchen Garden Group learned to make bread on a blustery Wednesday afternoon in March.

The club has about 70 members and they will be competing in the Sandringham Flower Show in July. In 2018 their entry in the Small Garden category earned them a Silver Gilt medal and they hope to better that this year when the small garden theme is Cottage Garden.

Members are also competing in the Osteospermum competition where everyone is given a plug plant and they grow it on until the show. This plant has become increasingly popular in recent years. These daisy-like flowers come in a range of colours but are usually white or multi-shades of pink or purple, and sometimes can even have colour changing flowers. Geoff Divey pictured far left reported that his plant was already about 4 inches tall and bushing out nicely. Clearly a competitive chap, Geoff won the box making competition at the baking day too!

Baking cottage loaves, novelty bread and crusty rolls the group acquired new skills and as founder member Carole Willis said: “We’ve had a great time and learned a lot.”

Peter Gohegan said: “We had a really strong group of bakers today; they made some lovely bread – fit for a Queen.”
