The Regional Representatives along with a committee of volunteer members are responsible for organising the Regional Exhibition: Sugarcraft North. We have held an exhibition every 2 years and have been hosted by the Pavilions of Harrogate since 2002, prior to that we had held exhibitions at York Racecourse. We also held an annual Sugar Skills Weekend at Alston Hall for 10 years. Sadly now closed due to local authority cuts, a successful 2016 Skills School with tutors June Twelves and Ann Parker was held at Lancaster U
niversity, with another planned for March 2018...
