Back To School!

Back to school 20150824

Summer is sadly coming to an end, which means it’s time to get organised for school and the new term. Whether your little one is starting or returning, the excitement of buying a new school bag and stationery means that it can be a fun experience.

Here at GLTC, we have everything to help get you organised for the new term including pencils, pencil cases, towels and swim bags. To ensure your child avoids the lost property box we offer a personalisation service and have a wide selection of name labels so your child and their favourite items will never be parted.


Great Little Bake Off competition – Winner Announced!

Our Great Little Bake Off competition was launched to celebrate the return of the Great British Bake Off to our screens. We were inundated with entries and loved looking through the pictures you submitted, even if they did make us quite hungry afterwards.

The Star Baker was Rajvir Thakore whose Vanilla Cupcake cones were chosen as the winning entry and we’re sure Mary Berry would be equally as impressed as we were. Rajvir’s decribed her master bake as Vanilla cupcake cones with Madagascan vanilla buttercream and a gooey homemade strawberry jam surprise centre. Topped with colourful sprinkles, strawberry sauce and a classic stick of crumbly chocolate.


We wanted to thank everyone that entered the competition and would like to share some of our favourite bakes. Continue reading
