Geoff Webster Bakery, located in Idlewells Indoor Market is celebrating their 60th Anniversary this week.
To mark the occasion Geoff Webster Bakery are doing a week of special daily offers as well as handing out a free slice of birthday cake to every customer.
The bakery was founded by Beryl and Geoff Webster in 1958 where they started by making and selling their products on Mansfield market, before eventually expanding their business into a shop, bakery and for the past 15 years as a stall on the indoor market in Sutton. The business is now run by three generations of the family. They still use traditional family recipes in their handmade products but they are always looking to the future to ensure that Geoff Webster’s is still a name that is synonymous with quality baked goods and meat.
Susan Robinson, granddaughter of Geoff Webster, says that the celebration is “to say thank you to all of our loyal customers, new and old, whose continued custom has made our business thrive. It’s also to celebrate still being here despite all the troubles and hardships that come with trading in a market.”
Cllr Jason Zadrozny, Leader of the Ashfield District Council, says “It’s fantastic to see a family business based in Ashfield doing so well after all these years of trading, it’s a testament to the dedication of the staff who have worked tirelessly to deliver a great product and service to the residents of Ashfield. 60 years is an impressive milestone and is one that I hope other businesses in the area can also aspire to reach. I encourage everyone to visit the indoor market to sample some of the great produce on offer.”
