Sausage Making Workshop, AGM and other important events

Sausage Making Workshop, October 14th 2012, midday-3pm at New Inn, Newbridge on Wye

Dave Lang and Sue Howe have very kindly agreed to lead a small workshop which will focus on sausage making as well as delving into the dark arts of black and white pudding making, burgers and bacon.  This will be a great opportunity for all of those Association members who plan to partipate in the sausage competition at the Winter fair to get hands on and learn from some of the best sausage makers in the business!

There are only 12 places available in the workshop (cost £10 each for members payable on the day), so if you would like to come please send Andy an e-mail or call him to book your place (  Lunch can
be purchased separately on the day.
