Phoenix News



We do receive lovely feedback from our customers, but are a bit shy about sharing it! However, we thought it was about time that we showcased our wonderful handmade paving slabs, by sharing this comment and photo “Please pass on thanks to the team - the quality of your work is fantastic, and everyone has been very helpful and accommodating”. Also, a big thumbs -up to three of our production team, Joe, Mark and David.

We have been making cakes for almost a year and are delighted to announce our trial offering them to a wider audience. Cakes need to be pre-ordered and can be collected from Phoenix in Milton on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 2 and 3 pm.


Our cake making began in lockdown, with restrictions leaving it too complicated to produce a two course meal for the workforce, whilst maintaining a socially distanced kitchen. However, we then had some very talented cooks kicking their heels, and started experimenting with baking cakes. Fast forward for eighteen months, and we now have a small (but perfectly formed) cake business.


Our (not so) secret ingredient, is, as always, our very talented co-workers, who have, excuse the pun, totally risen to this new challenge!



We are a small team, so when staff absences, planned or otherwise, occur, everyone lends a hand, and it is often then a case of the co-workers teaching the staff, as shown in Jude learning from David, how to de-nail and Noeleen receiving painting guidance from Nuala and Paul – every day is a school day!
