Dave Clarke, Baker’s Delight
Dave was an accountant with Baker’s Delight before buying his own store seven years ago.
“The best part of being a baker is the hours. I get the day to myself and get a lot of work done at the bakery when everyone else is asleep. I really like owning a bakery in the local area as I’ve lived here all my life. People I went to school with come in and I still see their parents who are also customers.”
Away from the bakery Dave is involved with the Aldgate Cricket Club. He has played with them since he was 15 years old and is now a life member. He is also a keen table tennis player too.
“I really like to help out the community. Each night we give our excess bread to different charities that come and collect it. We also like to sponsor lots of different local groups by supplying bread for their functions.”
