Talented WI members ensured that Cuckfield was well represented at this year’s South of England Show.
     Entries from the Cuckfield Evening WI could be found in many of classes in the annual competition which attracts entries from all over Sussex. From a spiced parsnip and raisin cake to a decorated hat, the members impressed the judges with their work.
     A joint entry, created by three members, which celebrated the work of popular author JK Rowling with biscuits, flowers and a decorated photo frame, was a particular hit with visitors to the WI Marquee. Other WI members could be found among the many volunteer stewards over the three day show.
