A typical training day

Laura and Risma produced some great bread at the training session led by Heather, our facilitator trainer.  As well as learning how to bake bread using the Somewhere Else recipe, they also learnt what to do if someone makes an error and puts in too much yeast etc.

Andrew, our treasurer, completed the final section of his training.  What a delicious cottage loaf.
