Mark Carney cancels cricket but Bank of England isn’t short on cake

Gabriella Griffith
Mark Carney may have caused a stir by banishing the traditional Bank of England summer cricket match this year, but by all accounts staff had a great day out, replete with face-painting, wheel-barrow races, the Wimbledon final on a big screen and a bake-off.
The governor, described by one tweeter as a “very cool guy”, was rocking a casual look, including long beige shorts – not something we expect to see repeated on Threadneedle St.
The extended Bank of England family look to be acc­omplished in the baking dep­art­ment. This photo snapped by one of the attendees, shows an array of baked treats including lemon drizzle cake, ginger cake and chocolate cake.
We presume there’ll be no belt-tightening at the Bank once they’ve polished off those sweet treats.
