Bognor Regis 30th Anniversary
Bognor Regis branch belatedly celebrated its 30th anniversary this year on Saturday 7th August as we were unable to meet in April due to Covid restrictions.
Region & Zoom Meetings
Cake Camera-derie and Gills Gathering’s almost came about by mistake, there was no plan on going into lockdown to run them. .
The Peek Freans Cake
This project came about as region 8 members loved working on the Queen’s replica Wedding cake and whilst they were assembled at the museum for a photo, they asked what the next project was. I suggested that we make a fun cake for the museum to include various aspects associated with Peek Freans and the items in the museum. More.
Postcard to the Queen
The Cygnets group at Bognor Regis has been running successfully for many years and I had the good fortune to be offered the leadership role 5 years ago.
What our Branches are doing
Over the next few months we will be publishing some of our branch reports as a window into what happens at a branch meeting and what some of our branches doing during lockdown.

Maidstone Branch were delighted to receive a Gold Award for their Red, Black and White table at the Region 8 exhibition in May 2017. On the table was an item depicting the Tower of London with over 500 miniature red poppies. More.
The Queens Cake
Towards the end of 2015 the British Sugarcraft Guild was approached for help and following discussion, the National Committee agreed to recreate a replica of Queen Elizabeth II’s wedding cake.
Which was originally created by Peak Frean in 1947 for her marriage to
Prince Phillip. More
