Bak­ery in jobs boost

The Galloway News - - NEWS -

Ten jobs will be cre­ated in Kirkcud­bright with the open­ing of a new bak­ery next week.

The Lit­tle Bak­ery has taken over the for­mer M Cor­son shop in St Cuth­bert Street and will open on Thurs­day.

The Dum­fries firm – run by fa­ther and son Kerr and Nick Lit­tle – is al­ready known in the town for the savoury pies sold at the Kirkcud­bright Farm­ers’ Mar­ket.

The Gri­er­son fam­ily shut the Cor­son shops in Cas­tle Dou­glas, Dal­beat­tie and Kirkcud­bright ear­lier this year. A num­ber of for­mer em­ploy­ees have found jobs with The Lit­tle Bak­ery.

Kerr Lit­tle, pic­tured, said: “We had al­ways planned to grow The Lit­tle Bak­ery and when the op­por­tu­nity arose to trade from the Kirkcud­bright shop we jumped at the chance.”

The coun­cil’s eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment ser­vice and DG Food and Drink have helped with the ex­pan­sion.

The news has been wel­comed by Gal­loway and West Dum­fries MSP Fin­lay Car­son. He said: “I am de­lighted to have played a role in fa­cil­i­tat­ing the dis­cus­sions which have re­sulted in such a pos­i­tive out­come.”
