THE OLYMPIC-MEDAL winning Brownlee brothers have opened a new bakery in the Dales.

Love Brownies has created a brand new bakery in a specially converted barn at Howgill, near Appletreewick, as part of its expansion drive.

Triathletes Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, from Bramhope, were delighted to declare the facility open - and announce a new partnership between The Brownlee Foundation and Love Brownies.

Alistair said: “It’s great to have the support of a local business to help continue the Foundation’s work of inspiring children to love being active and spreading the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle.”

Chantal Teal, founder of Love Brownies, said: “It is such an honour for two of Yorkshire’s best-loved sporting heroes to join us on behalf of their charity.

"We couldn’t be prouder and are so pleased to support their incredible work with the foundation.”

Started in Ilkley in 2016, Love Brownies has recently opened four new stores.
