Mr Trickett as...The Loafer

With a name like The Loafer you could be forgiven for assuming this country boy wears them on his feet… loafers that is. But no, you’d be wrong. His moniker owes more to what’s in his bag. His family business have jumped on the ‘artisan breadmakers’ bandwagon and operates like a Victorian bakery. He travels the streets with all manner of wholemeal treats for sale. We almost called him the ‘Barms Dealer’ but we’d have outcry from people claiming they’re called “muffins” or “cobs” or even worse “rolls”.
