Billington’s Gingerbread rolls out new-look packaging

first_imgShropshire-based Billington’s Gingerbread is to launch its new packaging today (28 June).Billington’s staff dressed in traditional costume and hosted a gingerbread and port tasting event in Market Drayton this morning to mark the launch of the revamped products.Local business Tanners Wine Merchants collaborated with Billington’s and provided the port for the event, as “dunking gingerbread in port is a tradition which dates back to the 19th century, when the farmers’ wives of Market Drayton used to enjoy ‘dunking’ their gingerbread in port on market day,” according to the gingerbread company.One of Billington’s bakers, Tim Hopcroft, said: “We are delighted to be manufacturing Billington’s Gingerbread for sale in Market Drayton and the surrounding areas.“Using the handed-down secret Billington’s Gingerbread recipe, we have developed the method for manufacturing in our modern bakery, to create a biscuit which is consistent to the original product while also being recognisable to its fan base. We hope that it will be enjoyed locally as well as nationally in due course.”last_img read more

Pochettino keeps focus amid praise

first_img “It’s going to be very difficult and tough. “On average they have the tallest team in the league, so I think they still have some aspects from when Tony Pulis was manager, but there some new aspects that Mark Hughes has introduced to the team and I think that it’s a team which over 90 minutes is able to do two different styles. “They can go for the long ball but also the short one so, overall, we expect a very tough encounter.” Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino is refusing to let increasing praise for his team distract them as they prepare for a physical battle at Stoke on Saturday. Pochettino, though, is adamant his side will not listen to such talk and his players are likely to heed his words given the positive results of his demanding approach. The Argentinian told Saints Player: “It makes me happy for the fans and for the players as well. “It’s always nice to get some recognition from the media, it makes me happy for the chairman as well as it’s all part of this club, but at the same time, my focus is on the staff and trying to improve on every single game and I’m 100 per cent focused on doing the best for this team and this club.” He added: “We always aim to maintain the same focus in training and training with the same intensity, so we just want to keep on training hard. “It’s clear that when you win you get a good atmosphere within the team and the club which is a very good thing, but we need to stay grounded and keep on training hard and looking ahead to the next game.” In contrast to Saints’ good form which sees them unbeaten in six games, their hosts are struggling at the wrong end of the table and have not tasted victory since August 31. Pochettino does not, though, expect anything other than a gruelling outing. “We expect a very tough and physical game,” Pochettino said. Press Association Saints moved to third in the Barclays Premier League – albeit only for a few hours – last weekend after beating Fulham at St Mary’s to claim their fifth victory of the season. While they were subsequently overtaken by Chelsea and Tottenham, Southampton are still in fifth, just four points off leaders Arsenal and with European qualification being mooted as an ever more realistic possibility. last_img read more

`I’m thankful to be alive’

first_imgDOWNEY – Ask teenagers what they are thankful for, and you’ll probably get a list of their favorite video games and clothes – and maybe something deeper, like family and friends.Most of the boys and girls who spent Thanksgiving Day in custody at Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall on Thursday gave a different answer.“I’m thankful to be alive,” said 18-year-old inmate Francisco, who spoke in a soft voice as he filed out of the detention facility’s small chapel following a special holiday Mass. “If I weren’t here, I’d probably be dead.”Most of the other wards in the detention center’s special section for high-risk offenders also said they were grateful for surviving their violent pasts – and they expressed that sentiment in cards they created for relatives who will visit Sunday.As a special treat for the holiday, the wards – ages 13 to 18 – were allowed to sleep about an hour later than the usual wake-up time of 6:15 a.m. Also, no school was held Thursday. Normally, their classes begin at 8 a.m. and go until 3 p.m.The youths also were allowed to participate in recreational activities for most of the day, including basketball, television, and time for writing letters and making phone calls home.For about 200 youths who attend the institution’s Catholic services, a special Mass was held.Church services at Los Padrinos, whether Catholic or Protestant, are regularly attended, said Sister Theresa, who has worked at the facility for more than 30 years.But the religious services are also a time when Los Padrinos’ staff is on high alert. Regardless of their gang affiliations, the youths celebrate services together inside the Grace Shepherd Chapel. Even a hint of problems between the wards can cause the offenders to be expelled from the chapel, officials said.As evening rolled around, the youngsters feasted on a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Staff members arrived early Thursday morning to cook two dozen turkeys and prepare gallons of mashed potatoes, corn bread stuffing, pumpkin pie and punch.“Holidays are good and bad for them,” said Supervising Officer Jesus Pinado. “They’re happy to have the recreation time, but they’re also more likely to act up, get in fights. They’re not at home, and they get depressed.” [email protected](562) 499-1261 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
