Taking the biscuit/cake


Clients and Michelle, the Marvellous Baker (volunteer) this week enjoying another baking success. Why is baking such a joy? Measuring ingredients and following recipes give us a sense of routine, which can be calming. Baking, according to psychologists, triggers our senses of smell, touch, taste and then, finally seeing our end result. And would you believe that baking has therapeutic value physically, cognitively, socially and interpersonally, and encourages creativity! But our clients are not bothered with that as they measure, and knead and bake and enjoy tea with a freshly baked bun, and take some home for later………one of our 2022 New Year resolutions is to find funding so that this much loved weekly activity can continue and invite more people to join up.
