Sparling & Faiers in Lavenham has been named the most loved bakery in East Anglia.
Customers praised Sparling & Faiers for the high quality of its cakes and bakes, and for the fantastic range available.
As part of this year’s Craft Bakers’ Week, bakeries across the country encouraged customers to vote for them as the most loved bakery in East Anglia.
Anne Faiers from Sparling & Faiers said: “It feels fantastic to be voted as the most loved bakery in East Anglia. Bakeries are an important part of any community, and it is great to see that we are so loved by our customers.
“We would like to thank all those who voted for us for their continued support both towards us and the art of craft baking”.
Hannah Marriage, chair of Craft Bakers’ Week 2015, said: “Bakeries have been a feature on our high street for generations and have become an incredibly important part of communities all over the country.
“Some bakeries are over one hundred years old, and have passed recipes down through the generations, including many delicious regional specialities.”
Craft Bakers’ Week 2015 also helped to support the work of Make-A-Wish UK.
Last year bakers helped raise £20,000. Local participating bakeries are raising money in different ways including selling cakes and biscuits with the Make-A-Wish UK logo as well as holding events and tastings.
Lynn Taylor, community fundraising manager at Make-A-Wish UK said: “We’re delighted to have the ongoing support of Craft Bakers’ Week for 2015. The money raised will help us to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions.”
