A baker is hopeful her Colne business will bring something “both traditional and new” to Lancashire’s Capital of Cool.
Deerstones Bakery has this week opened its doors in The Arcade, in Market Street, offering freshly baked artisan bread and pastries.
Baker Kelly Eardley will be working alongside other small independent businesses, and will also be putting on regular bread baking classes.
She said: “I’m really excited to have my own shop in Colne and look forward to welcoming new customers to try artisan bread, which has real flavour and is additive free.
“I’ll be making loaves by hand using the finest organic flour.
“My love of baking real bread has led me to a career change to enter the world of artisan bread.” Kelly has been testing out her bakery business for nine months at La Dolce Vita, in Albert Road, with friends Sara Mumby and Sarah Lee who run Colne’s Italian deli.
Kelly and the Dolce Vita team met while working at Pendle Council several years ago. Sarah said: “Deerstones Bakery adds a new dimension to what Colne can offer, making it an even more interesting and friendly place to come and shop.”
Customers can follow Kelly’s progress and news via her Deerstones Facebook page and Twitter.
