Personal message from BHBPA Chairman, Susan Fleet

To all members via the newsletter

Bake Off for a very special cause

I do hope you will be able to join us on Wednesday for the Bake-Off event at TKC; it will be a very special and highly enjoyable occasion to support a charity close to many of our hearts.

This is not about how good you are at cake making, and I urge everyone to come along and join in the fun at what promises to be a fantastic networking opportunity.

We will be entertained by ‘The Cake Fairy’ (AKA Mia Clift) who has more than a few tales to tell about the world of cake making, sharing a few handy tips and doubtless the odd confession to boot.  Our two judges will be caterer extraordinaire Tatjana Keenan (whom we all know and love as Tats) and senior cake decorator Shakira Tettersell from Lizzie’s Food Factory.

Whatever your level of baking skills, all entries are welcome and, remember, you don’t have to bake a cake; cookies, brownies and biscuits are welcome as much as fairy cakes or traybakes. For the more adventurous, why not have a go at creating a show-stopper to reflect your business’s theme.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday, and remember that it’s all in aid of our friends at St Peter and St James’ Hospice and all the wonderful work they do.

Susan Fleet
BHBPA Chairman

"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."

Oliver Lashley , Director
(Pure Storm Digital Services )

"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.

It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"

Susan Fleet, Managing Director
(Lea Graham Associates)

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "

Judi Arditi, Director
(Travail Employment Group)

"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
