Baking with the Staff of Burgess Hill Girls

Posted: 13th May 2020

Who doesn’t love a bit of baking? During lockdown people around the globe have picked up their whisks and cleared the supermarket shelves of eggs and flour to give their baking skills a go, including the staff at Burgess Hill Girls. We are hoping that these short videos might give you a bit of a nudge to dust off those baking trays and try something new in lockdown if you haven’t already!
