STOCK­PORT MP Ann Cof­fey wel­comed the town’s new com­mu­nity bak­ery, brand­ing it a valu­able com­mu­nity as­set.

Based on Ch­ester­gate, The Kitchen is a bak­ery and cafe run by clients and volunteers of the char­ity Pure In­no­va­tions.

Freshly baked goods are made each day to be served to cus­tomers or do­nated to nearby char­i­ties.

Ann met with clients, volunteers and cus­tomers at The Kitchen, be­fore help­ing to make some cup­cakes for sale.

She said: “I’m proud that The Kitchen has opened in Stock­port town cen­tre.

“It’s a bright, open space where you can see your food be­ing pre­pared and the bread and cakes I re­ceived were de­li­cious.”

Pure In­no­va­tions op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor, David Fer­rier, added: “Our clients and volunteers are al­ready learn­ing new skills at The Kitchen, and we’re con­fi­dent that this will con­tinue.

“We want it to be­come a well used com­mu­nity space and we’re now start­ing to donate freshly baked goods to lo­cal peo­ple in need.”

The Kitchen, lo­cated at Gray­law House, be­tween the Air Raid Shel­ters and the Plaza, is open 9am to 4pm, Mon­day to Satur­day.
