Saturday 22nd June sees the return of the annual Brixton Windmil Festival and parade in which we take a very active part. The parade leaves from Windrush Square at 1pm. Look out for the usual Old Post Office bakery float designed and built by Richard, Cate and our fantastic helpers. The festival is from 2-6pm and we’ll be providing baked goodies, savoury and sweet.
And… we are also very proud to be introducing a brand new bread which has been developed in partnership Andy and the team at Brockwell Bake. (brockwell-bake.org.uk)
The Windmill Loaf is made of a blend of grains sown and harvested within a 50 mile radius of London and is part of Brockwell Bake’s ongoing project which aims to resurrect local heritage wheats, specific to the London area, which have been lost to cultivation for hundreds of years.
This very special loaf is also part of the active fundraising scheme to restore Brixton Windmill to working order. A proportion of the money raised from its sale will go towards the fund and once the restoration is complete the hope is to actually mill the flour for this loaf and others at the Windmill.
So come along and celebrate the amazing Windmill, try the most locally produced bread you’re ever likely to have tasted and as an extra treat enjoy some tunes from our very own Richard Scroggs and his band The Jug Addicts!!
