THERE was no loafing about for a mayor during a visit at a bakery.

Bromley Mayor Douglas Auld visited the Kingsmill Orpington bakery last Wednesday to meet some of its 400 employees.

The bakery, which first opened in 1938, is one of the borough's largest and long-standing companies.

During the tour, the mayor met one of the company's longest standing employees, Steve Roberts, who has been baking bread for Kingsmill since 1970.

Paul Hughes the general manager of the Kingsmill Orpington bakery said: "It's a real honour, not only to receive a personal visit from the Mayor of Bromley, but to be recognised as one of Bromley's largest employers.

"We do hope the Mayor enjoyed his time here, and didn't mind swapping his robe and chains for a baker's hat and apron.
