Our September meeting was sponsored by and held at Bidfood in Wakefield, and hosted by Miranda Wallis.
The meeting was reasonably well attended, with 17 Members, but what was disappointing was the lack of caterers. I know time is at a premium, but half a day six times a year isn’t too much to ask. The opportunities afforded by networking with other Members and suppliers in the one place, at the same time, cannot be over stated.
With that whinge out of the way, I move on to the HCA/LACA EXPO that was held at Cedar Court Hotel in Wakefield. For the past few years this event was held in Doncaster but the change of venue was a great success. The trade show and demonstrations were held in the same large room, so more time could be spent looking around the exhibition, and the lunch was provided by the exhibitors, which was a great opportunity for them to showcase their products. As well as Yorkshire Branch Members attending, I was pleased to see Members from the Trent and North East Branches there too.
