Where to find Local Bakery Deliveries online.

In light of the recent pandemic, people in lockdown and businesses closing it is becoming apparent that we are still struggling to source freshly baked items such as barms, bloomers and rolls especially when we cannot leave the house.

Therefore, to bridge the gap between bakers and consumers, a new website has been created to help bring the two together.

Introducing Baker Direct.

Baker Direct was created by the Cybake Team at Redblack Software and has been designed to allow users in England, Scotland and Wales the chance to order freshly made items from their nearest bakery which are then delivered straight to your door.

The site is straightforward and extremely easy to use; all you have to do is enter your postcode and alter the search radius by dragging your mouse over the big red button if no bakeries show up. I set the radius to 10 miles which then allowed numerous bakeries within the vicinity to be listed. The name, details and products of the bakery are shown along with the delivery coverage.

You can then decide from the listings which bakery offers you the goods you are looking for, you order your much-needed supplies thus helping a local business stay open to the public in the process. Win-win really!

For those bakeries offering a delivery service and wish to be included on the website you should either contact [email protected] or try the Bakery Registration Form

Even if your not a baker but know someone who is please be sure to pass it on. That way, the site will continually evolve, and more and more people will stay in business, connected and more importantly well fed.

Thank you!

Please note that Baker Direct is supported by British Baker, Craft Baker’s Association, British Society of Baking, Scottish Bakers and Bakery Business.

No luck here, even had to extend the search to 40 miles and it showed 1 who was 31 miles away and only delivered to the surrounding areas. :disappointed:
It was a nice idea for anyone who could take advantage of the service.

I know, hopefully, more bakeries will register, and more people will be able to get deliveries from it.

Yes it is a pity especially as a few years ago the was a baker in Tenby, well the shop was in Tenby can't remember where the actual baker was but if you wanted fresh bread and rolls etc. that was the place to go, they also did cakes.

There were lots of people who were very upset when they announced they were closing. There used to be a bakery in the next village years ago as well, it was the Post Office, shop and bakery but again another one that shut down, I think the people retired and there was no-one to take over.

A local couple took it over and opened it as a shop and Post Office but the bakery part was lost, it's a bigger and better shop now though so that's a good thing, We used to have a good shop in our village but family fall outs led to the closure, it was sold on but the people who bought it only had part of as a very small shop and mainly just catered for workers selling coffee, breakfast boxes etc. other parts of the premises were let off to other businesses, there was a nail bar which closed and then turned into a barbers. Parts of the space in front was used by someone selling second had cars, but of course they are closed now, well they closed down in the winter so really it was just a seasonal opening times shop.

So now all we have are 2 pubs which are closed for the time being.

That's sad when local businesses close down, especially when you have to go further afield for items that you need. That's why I think the website is a good idea, especially with the pandemic and people trying to source as many fresh items as possible. If the word gets out about the Baker Direct website and more people get registered, we may be able to keep local businesses open for other people for a lot longer. 😊
