East Sussex Federation

It’s South of England Show cake time!

The WI tent is always a great hit with our visitors. We hope it provides a calm haven from the hustle and bustle of the showground, and of course WI refreshments are always a treat.  None of this would be possible without the generous help of many members across both counties.

2019 is the centenary of both federations and we are hoping to put on the best show ever.

We are asking members to help with cakes and serving, but also, we’re asking crafty members to make tea cosies!  Sign-up sheets and recipes are included in your posting.  More details for tea cosies will follow next month.

We have taken note of members feedback about the cake recipes and have updated them to reflect your comments, but as always, we are happy to hear your feedback. I know some members aren’t keen on the set recipes, but this allows us to answer the many questions we get about ingredients and meet legal requirements regarding allergens.

We’re also asking for WIs to indicate on the cake sign up form where they would like to drop off their cakes.  This will help us manage the collections.

Please can cake forms be returned by 17th April 2018, allowing us time to count numbers and put out a second request if needed. Please take a copy before returning the forms to me either by post or email. For those who are a whizz with technology please feel free to take a picture and email, text or Whatsapp it back to me.

There is no deadline for the helper forms, but the sooner the better if your members want a particular day or shift.
