Bakers delight at top honour
8:30pm Tuesday 22nd January 2013 in News
ONE of Bromyard’s best known businesses, Lamings bakers shop at the top of the town’s High Street, has been awarded the Bromyard Chamber of Commerce 2012 Best Bromyard Business award.
The shop at 52 High Street was opened 1959 by Cliff Laming following his posting to RAF Credenhill and has been a cornerstone of Bromyard ever since.
It is now run by Mr Laming’s sons, Richard and Andrew, who received the award from Chamber chairman Geoff McGladdery at the Chamber’s annual awards lunch.
Baking runs in the Laming family as the brothers’ maternal grandmother was a baker in Brigg, Lincolnshire, and now some of her great grandchildren also work in the business.
Mr McGladdery said: “Lamings is a good old-fashioned bakery making all their own cakes and bread using traditional methods and ingredients, so it is hardly a surprise the shop is busy six days a week. They also supply other shops and restaurants with their produce.
“In the 25 years since I moved to the area, I can never recall being the only customer in the shop, it is always busy and often has a queue stretching out on to the pavement.
“It is great that we have this wonderful shop in our town.”
