What a great turn out we had at the CCC Great Big Get Together held at the Cake and Bake Show in the Excel centre in London. We were given a cordoned off area of the champagne bar. Visitors to the show also mingled with some of our members. As a result, I had a captive audience which enabled me to introduce myself to potential new members while they drank their champagne.
It was so good to put faces to the names of members and organisers. Many of whom I’d only conversed with over the years via email. It was so good to talk to them about their members and club. It’s heart warming to hear how many people have built meaningful friendships as a result of being a member of their local group.
The bond between organiser and their members was evident when groups arranged to travel together and meet up at the show, just for this occasion. It was lovely to see them all.
Many thanks to Uzma, organiser of CCC Milton Keynes & District who helped me look after the stand while talking to passers by all about the Clandestine Cake Club. She was a mini me with her knowledge.
Thanks for coming. Please post a comment and let me know if you came along. I’m so looking forward to our next CCC Great Big Get Together, this time in Manchester. Once again we’ll be in the champagne bar area. I hope you’ve got your ticket.
Many thanks to the Cake and Bake Show for all their support with arranging this event.
