Keith and Lynne Allan, who run their country concept store at the Old Dairy in Ford, have become AGA Ambassadors.

One of only a handful of businesses selected throughout the country, their role as ambassadors is a new one, devised by AGA to show off the latest versions of their iconic cookers, and it means the Old Dairy will have a permanent, working AGA for all the daily baking.

“We are complete AGA nuts,”said the Allans. “Every day we bake in our AGA at home but now we’ll be able to cook and demonstrate at the Dairy.”

A kitchen shop will also sell AGA cookware together with vintage kitchenalia, and anyone interested in buying an AGA will be directed to their nearest distributor, which in north Northumberland and the Borders is Lillie Heating in Selkirk.

The Allans have recently returned from a two-day visit to the AGA foundry and factory in Shropshire where 
they saw the cookers being made.
