January 2017 Meeting

Happy New Year!

We were delighted to welcome back Shelley van Loen for another chocolate-making workshop on Wednesday 18 January 2017.  It was a great start to the New Year with record breaking attendance – we had to break out the toddler seats there were so many visitors!  As always, Shelley was very entertaining and we all enjoyed listening and sampling some of her delicious creations.

We wish all our members and readers a very happy New Year.
