The Bakers’ Benevolent Society (BBS) is holding a family open day, following the success of its 150th anniversary open day last year.

The event will be held on Sunday 5 July at Bakers’ Villas in Epping, Essex. BBS president Moira Rank will attend, as will members of the Worshipful Company of Bakers and industry trade associations.

The gates will open at 1pm and the theme this year is ’jazz’. A New Orleans jazz band has been booked for the afternoon, which will also feature a hog roast and barbecue.

BBS will also use the opportunity to show supporters how it has spent its donations, as well as the work that has been carried out at Bakers’ Villas.
