Tide Mill Bake Off!

Woodbridge Tide Mill gets youngsters baking at the Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival Woodbridge Tide Mill got youngsters baking harvest loaves at this year’s popular Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival. The team from the iconic local landmark led a group of children in an enjoyable and informative baking session using Tide Mill flour. Woodbridge Tide Mill Harvest LoafThe finished loaves had little mice on them, a nod to the Tide Mill’s mascot, Millie the Mouse. The Tide Mill presented each of the budding young bakers with a free Tide Mill t-shirt – a gesture made possible through the donations gratefully received from the Coop community token scheme.Nigel Barratt, Miller and Chairman of Woodbridge Tide Mill Trust, explains, “Since the refurbishment of the Mill it’s become an engaging, enjoyable and educational place for young people to visit. Plus, we’ve been able to mill great quality flour. At the Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival, we were keen to be involved and to interact with children through a fun activity. They had a great time and showed real talent as young bakers.”The Tide Mill is staying very much involved with the local food and drink scene as they host the launch party, a historical talk and the much loved ‘Shuck Shack’ pop up restaurant during the Woodbridge Shuck Shellfish Festival which takes place between 8-11th October.
