Breaking bread

Breaking bread: Reading East MP Rob Wilson visited Caversham firms Tipsy Bean and the Nomad Bakery for Small Business Saturday, a national initiative which promotes independent businesses and encourages consumers to shop locally. At the Tipsy Bean café in Prospect Street, above left, he had a coffee with general manager Lucy Harris (left) and Colette Pringle, a member of staff. The business opened in July and serves coffee during the day and wine in the evening. The bakery, which opened in Prospect Street in October, is run by Laura Mariel Gonzalez (above) and Josep Curto Díaz, the pair behind Pop-Up Reading, who aim to increase the choice and diversity of food on offer in the town. Mr Wilson said: “Small businesses are the lifeblood of our local high streets and Small Business Saturday is a brilliant way to encourage people to shop locally.”
