Meet the people behind #gettingtheterracedone – part 4

Meet our CLT Board #gettingtheterracedone! Here, Ralph, our Chair, explains his passion for Homebaked and what his vision is for the future:

“I’ve worked as a solicitor out of Liverpool city centre for 25 years – and I was asked to join the board of Homebaked CLT as it was felt there was a need for legal expertise: I hoped that I could use some of the experience I had gained over the years as a lawyer to help the CLT achieve its objectives, to preserve the building where the bakery is based and to deliver a redevelopment of the terrace. Along the way I hoped that it might be possible to enjoy some of excellent bread and pies produced by the bakery! (When I am not working I like to cook whilst listening to loud music. I am also writing a book about mackerel).
Homebaked CLT matters to me because I enjoy working with the other board members. Although we face difficult challenges in relation to what we are trying to achieve, the combined strength and enthusiasm of the other people involved make me feel confident that we can and will achieve our goals.
For the future I want to see Homebaked CLT successfully delivering the redevelopment of the terrace – with the residential parts full of local people finding a good new home for themselves -and the bakery and local brewers Homegrown Collective flourishing either end of the terrace. I want to see Homebaked confident in its future and looking for opportunities to reproduce the success of the terrace.”
