An ex NHS dental nurse has set up a bakery and deli on Leazes Street.

Hannah Maughan moved to Amble last September, just after getting married. But sadly she then lost her job as a dental nurse, due to Covid and cuts to NHS England. So she looked around for another venture.

Hannah told the Ambler, she was enjoying her new life. “I had the opportunity to open the shop, so started The Puffin as a new way to make ends meet, despite never doing anything like this before. It’s been an adventure I am very much enjoying.”

Hannah makes a selection of stotties and cakes from scratch each morning, the cakes are made from Hannah’s own recipies which change every day.

“There is a playful sandwich menu named after celebrities and characters, ranging from ham and salami (The Soprano), to falafel and hummus (The Tommy Cooper) with new additions to come!”

There is also a selection of gifts, trinkets, European snacks and dried goods to browse, as well as painted canvases on the walls from local artists.

The Puffin is situated at 2 Leazes St and is open Thurs-Sat 10:00-18:00 and Sunday 10:00-17:00, and may open more days as summer approaches.

Hannah said, “I would like to thank everybody who has been so kind and welcomed us into the community, Amble is such a lovely place to be.”
