Village Oven Bakes Again

We get most of our heat and light from electricity. The problem is,
electricity can be expensive!
我們的熱能以及光都是靠電力。但是電費很貴喔!

Thousands of years ago, in England, owning an oven was expensive too. Most
people didn't have one in their home.
好幾千年以前,大多數的英國人家裡沒有窯,因為窯太貴了。

Instead of lots of little ovens, most villages had just one that was really
big. They called it the 'village oven'. The baker would use it first. Then,
while the oven was still warm, everyone else could use it too!
當時村莊裡面會有一座共用的窯。烘焙師傅先用,他烤完之後,其他的村民也趁熱去使用。

Last year, a baker in England decided to bring the village oven back! He
wanted to help people pay their electric bills, so he opened up his huge
kitchen for everyone to use, and even offered to cook some things for free!
去年有一個英國的烘焙師傅,他想幫大家省電費,所以恢復了這個傳統。他讓大家用他的廚房,還免費烤東西給大家吃!

They call him Baker Ed. He's helped people in his town lots of times before.
He's held free cookery classes and free kid's clubs. And when it's cold he
lets people use the heat of his oven to keep warm!
大家叫他 Ed
師傅。他以前也常常幫助他的村莊。他會開免費的烘焙課,還有小孩的社團!很冷的時候,他也會讓大家在他的烤箱旁邊取暖!

His neighbors and friends think he is doing an amazing thing, helping people
to eat and keep warm while electricity is so expensive. Bravo Baker Ed!
