A Short History of Bothams Bakery

Jo Botham (great grandson of Elizabeth Botham) came to Ebberston village hall this week to give a talk about the history of this very local institution. We had a great turnout as well and raised over £150 for village hall funds.

We were amazed at the number of children this astonishing (and formidable by all accounts) lady had all while setting up and expanding her Whitby business! We also found out that Bothams were the first business in the UK to sell food online!

Thanks to everyone who came along.
