The Royal Cheshire Show 2018

Blooming Brilliant Cheshire Show

Blooming Brilliant Cheshire Show

It was a ‘blooming brilliant’ Royal Cheshire Show for us when a trio of volunteers dressed up in giant underwear to treat crowds to a taste of our new range of Artisan bloomers.

Sporting chef’s hats and huge bloomers themselves, three of our courageous staff took to the showground with dozens of platters of bread for visitors to sample during the popular two-day event.

Graham Finnigan, Community Champion, said: “We’re a local family run business with a 130-year heritage and Cheshire is very much our heartland. This is the 13th consecutive year that we’ve supported the Cheshire Show as principal sponsor and this time we wanted to do something fresh and unexpected to engage with our local community. And we had to have a bit of fun too!

“As a ‘next generation bakery’, this was the perfect way for us to get out there and meet our consumers and give them the chance to try some of our tasty new loaves. We were constantly filling the platters during the event, so I’d say our volunteers definitely did a ‘blooming brilliant’ job!”

The Roberts Bakery Food Hall also won the coveted John Platt presidents’ choice trophy for the best trade stand. Graham Finnigan and Karol Bailey, steward of the food hall, were presented with the trophy by Cheshire Show president Henry Brooks.

It was Sunday 22nd July, the third day of the Bluedot festival at Jodrell Bank, and grey skies weren’t dampening any spirits as Roberts Bakery Brass Band kicked off the action on the main stage!

An hour of hits including “Don’t Stop Me Now,” “Poker Face” and “Uptown Funk” had the crowd going wild, and the feeling really was out of this world. To see more photos and videos, and to find out more about what the band is doing in the future, why not head on over to their Facebook page.

The Little Treats Bakery Anniversary

30 Sweet Years...

30 Sweet Years...

In July, we were thrilled to celebrate a milestone in Little Treats history with a barbecue to remember!

All FRS staff members were invited to come along, enjoy the glorious sunshine, and fill up on the delicious food cooked by our catering team. Little Treats, which started out 30 years ago as The Pastry Case, had even managed to make samples of those cream cakes they used to make all those years ago!

It was also wonderful to see the return of some of the retired members of staff who started this journey with us.
