Thanks to everyone who bought a cake.

Two volunteers from our club will be asked to participate – Roger promises a “FUN” evening!
For those members who were unable to attend our January meeting the theme of our next raffle, as it’s near to Valentines day, is anything RED!
Best wishes for a Happy and healthy new year to all our members and friends .
The theme for the January raffle is FRUIT.
Fresh, tinned or dried .Sorry to say I forgot to announce it at the last meeting .
See you all there
Amazing result to the cake sale for the hospice shop .
Amazing is the word .
We’ve surpassed all expectations .
£960 for the cakes on sale and so far £300 for the cake being raffled But there is another 10 days left for more tickets to be sold !!!!!
But it gets even better .
A club member has donated £60 to make the £940 up to £1000
A local business has pledged to double the amount of money that the cakes have sold for
What an amazing outcome .
Well done to all our members you should all feel so proud .
A bit of a change today
Instead of lunch we had afternoon tea .
Lovely afternoon. I think everyone enjoyed it, Certainly didn’t go home hungry as you can see from the photos .
The April Meeting was our A.G.M.
Our usual look back at the last year and check that our finances are all in good order .
Chris our treasurer was happy to report that all is good and thanks to the fund raising monthly themed raffle and the Food with Friends For Funds lunches there is no reason to increase our subscriptions .
So all round good news .
Once the business of the evening was over it was down to the really important part of the evening ,
Our cheese and biscuit supper.
Although this was the business evening for the club it was a really pleasant evening.
Our speaker for May is Gemma Parker of ” Gemma’s Crafty Cakes” in Felixstowe.
Gemma will be showing us how she made some of the decorations she used on some of the cakes that won her Gold and Silver
prizes at the cake international sugarcraft show.
So we look forwards to that.
