VISITORS to a bakery in Riddings got a series of tasty treats this week.

Luke Evans Bakery, one of the oldest family-run bakeries in the Midlands, has been celebrating National Craft Bakers’ Week with a string of competitions, demonstrations, tastings and offers.

On Tuesday, at the bakery’s base on Green Hill Lane, there were a series of cake-decorating demonstrations.

Yesterday, Wednesday, the bakery, which was founded in 1804, invited members of the public in to taste a variety of delicious goods.

Also, there is a chance for a local good cause, within two miles of the bakery, to win £207 - one pound for every year that Luke Evans has been in business. The bakery is inviting applications from charities and other organisations.

It’s also running a recipe competition, with the winning entry being produced and named after the person who put forward the idea. First prize is a £50 voucher to spend on bread and cakes at the bakery.

Finally, five deserving firms within five miles of the bakery will receive a dozen free cream cakes for elevenses tomorrow, Friday. To find out more, go to www.lukeevans.co.uk.
