Renovation of Mansfield’s famous bakery shows the town’s appetite for traditional produce

The Church Street premises were acquired in the early 1980s.

Founded in 1958, Geoff Webster serves the public in the Mansfield and Sutton areas with a range of quality meats and handmade baked goods.

The company has a stand at the Idlewells Center in Sutton, a bakery on Derby Street in Mansfield, and a shop on Church Street in Mansfield town centre.

The store was acquired by Geoff and Beryl Webster, the company’s founders, in 1982 and has proven popular with shoppers from near and far.

Geoff Webster, the founder whose recipes are still as successful as ever.

Now the company has announced that the store will undergo a renovation, closing on June 13 and reopening on July 4.

Susan Robinson, one of Geoff and Beryl’s granddaughters, said: “We are very pleased to announce that we will be refurbishing our shop and we apologize to all of our customers for any inconvenience caused by this.

“We are committed to Geoff Webster continuing to be a true family business providing our customers with the high quality of products and service they deserve.”

During the closure, the bakery’s products can be purchased from its covered market stall in the Idlewells Center in downtown Sutton.

There will also be a booth at the Mansfield Armed Forces Day event in downtown Mansfield on Sunday, July 3, from 10:30 a.m.

Susan added, “We are proud to be part of this wonderful day in our town and will be selling our lovely baked goods.”

Susan added that the business still uses recipes developed by Geoff, with shoppers particularly enjoying the pork pies, sausage rolls and cornflake pies the shop makes and sells.

The Church Street store has undergone minor renovations over the years, but the makeover will give it a modern and fresh look, Susan said, while maintaining the traditional look.

Geoff died in September 2001, and Beryl died in February 2015, and her daughter Lynn became the owner.

Earlier this year, Lynn passed the business on to her three daughters and son who, along with her son-in-law, grandson and granddaughter, run the family business.
