29th April 2011 – ‘The Royal Wedding’

20th April 2011 – ‘Decorate a Cake for Easter’

Sharon Humphries came to Bushell House today to give an entertaining and inspiring demonstration of how to decorate a cake for Easter.  The cake was chocolate and she bought with her several different types of chocolate for us to taste, from the very cocoa rich dark chocolate through to white chocolate.  With amazing skill she made flowers, an Easter bunny and a car for him to sit in out of sugar paste and more chocolate.  The finished result was a triumph and was one of the prizes in the Bushell House Easter Raffle.

13th April 2011 – ‘Travels in China’

Mr Ken Geddes came to give a fascinating lecture with slides on his travels to the less well known areas of China. We saw photos taken during his journeys by train of towns and villages not on the normal tourist routes which gave a marvellous insight into everyday life in China today.

‘Greeting Cards’

Gaynor Balshaw came to show us how to make greeting cards.  She bought with her the materials we needed to make a card each and showed us just what to do to make a thoroughly professional looking card which we can send to friends with pride in our work!
