The talents in Humble Pie were endless and no request from any customer was ever refused. Partly because ‘’No!’’ has never been in Elizabeth’s vocabulary! Elizabeth and her beloved team gave everything their best shot, with regular catering events inside and out of Humble Pie, Christmas orders and many more fabulous occasions throughout the five years the shop was open for their customers.
In 2004, the closing party ‘’Bye Bye Humble Pie’’ took place and Elizabeth with her three girls and staff closed the doors of Humble Pie and moved in to their new home within the village. In the meantime, Elizabeth went on to open Wensleydale Foods Ltd, were she made homemade additive free microwavable meals and puddings for children and families across the country called Betty Guy’s Little Pies and Susie Guy’s little Puddings, were her two youngest girls modeled on the front of each pie and pudding, much to Susie’s delight.
In 2010 Elizabeth and her friend Pat Kirkbride wrote and published their very own cookery book, Ramblers Rewards, cooking from coast to coast. Containing only the best of their most loved recipes for savory snack and meals, sweets treats and puddings. Brilliant for everyday use, inspiring your families evening meals and pudding to follow!
And here we are today… the girls are all grown up and doing their own thing, having flown the nest, Emily lives in London and Susie goes to University in Newcastle. Betty still lives at home in Askrigg with Elizabeth and Bruce, Elizabeth’s husband. Having left school in 2014, Betty worked for Milners of Leyburn and studied Business Administration during an apprenticeship for two years. When she completed her apprenticeship she persuaded her mother to open Humble Pie Fawcett and Guy in partnership together as a new business. The opportunity was a one that could not be missed, fortunately for Betty it didn’t take much persuasion and Elizabeth was on board and they began the plans for the reopening of Humble Pie Fawcett & Guy.
