Visit to Wrights Pies

Members of the Homes and Gardens sub-committee and members of the Board, recently had a most interesting and enjoyable visit to the Wrights Pie factory at Crewe.
After welcoming us with a coffee, the Chairman, Peter Wright, grandson of the founder of this family firm, presented a slide show tracing the firms beginnings in 1926 to the present day.
After donning the obligatory overalls hairnets gloves and shoe protectors, which gave rise to many giggles, we entered the factory which produces various delicious cakes and pastries.
Everything was spotless and what a variety: cheesecakes, bakewell tarts, doughnuts, mince pies, to name just a few.
It was fascinating to see how it was all produced and packaged.
The tour complete our hosts took us back to the board room, and to our astonishment, entertained us to a beautifully presented buffet, containing some of the items we had seen made.
Our thanks for the hospitality of Peter Wright and his family for giving their time to make us so welcome, and to Mary Hignett chair of Homes and Gardens for organising the visit.
