Last Wednesday's Baking Club was great. It was, to me, what the hub is all about. Lauren had a idea and put a huge amount of effort in to making it work. We had lots of helpers who beavered away helping children, finding things, washing up, taking things out of the oven. And then we had the families who were great fun. Great too to have a mix of familiar faces and new visitors. Apparently we had honeymooners join us on the day but I didn't realise that until after the event.
Little Gracie had her first birthday party at the hub on Saturday morning. Her mum Lou had made an incredible dinosaur cake for her. The hub seems to work really well for parties. It think it's just the right size. I remember for Lottie's 5th birthday when I had just moved back to Exeter, I hired a huge school hall and the pressure to fill it with children, food and decorations nearly finished me off.
