Nick has been with us for 21 years.   A true gentleman and quiet achiever, going about his daily business of running the bakehouse. He runs a tight ship leading by example. His work ethic is based on the old fashioned values – punctuality – respect – putting everything into the job – going the extra mile.  A hard worker, loyal colleague, good friend and brilliant baker!  He is the glue that holds the bakehouse together. We would be lost without him!
