What is a Regional Rep?
There are 7 geographical regions within the BSG. Each Region has a maximum of 3 elected members who are available to offer advice to branches, oversee the opening of new branches, organise fund raising for the regions with events such as exhibitions, workshops and skills schools. They also arrange 2 Regional Meetings with representatives from the branches and individuals within their region. The aim of such is to answer any questions, and give advice and guidance to branches. They attend 2 National Regional Representatives meetings where they feed back this information to Regional Representatives Chairperson, one meeting is in April and the other October.
Ursula Brown – Chair of Region
My name is Ursula Brown and I have been a member of BSG Plym Valley Branch since 2010. I became a committee member to Branch soon after and have been treasurer and then chairperson for a number of years. In 2013 I offered to become regional secretary in which I enjoy. Through the British Sugarcraft Guild I have met lots of marvelous sugarcrafters from up and down the country and look forward to meeting them at various meetings I have to attend or at the shows.
I enjoy making most aspects of Sugarcraft but my modelling could do with help!
Alan Manship – Secretary
