I've decided that it is time to start writing more about companies in my local area.
I am all for buying locally and promoting local businesses these days and
am planning on helping the little shops around my area this year when it comes
to buying gifts, a treat for myself or a meal out.
The first little company I wanted to tell you about is Amour Bakery.
I recently won a competition to win a range of bakery goodies from them
which prompted me with the idea of telling you all about more of the
wonderful businesses around Leighton Buzzard.
Amore Bakery is a family run business that makes and sells cakes and other baking goodies
to the trade and public.
They also run cake making and decorating classes.
Amore bakery does deliveries not only in Leighton Buzzard
but also around Milton Keynes and Aylesbury.
I was thrilled to win there competition last week and when my prize arrived
I couldn't have been happier.
As you can see my prize was a huge selection of goodies
my favourite had to be the Easter cupcakes though.
I also gave my mum half the goodies in the box so that she could have a lovely
treat with a cup of coffee.
Do you tend to buy local?
