Sugar and spice…and all things nice

Kirkby Lonsdale Womens Institute

Kirkby Lonsdale WI will be meeting on Wednesday 7th September  2022 at 7.30pm in the Lunesdale Hall.  Come along to hear Emily Burr, Head of Confectionery Buying at Booths Supermarkets share her story…..

Whilst studying for her degree in Food Technology, Emily gained a four week placement at Booths, setting her on her sugary career…and she hasn’t looked back since! She will explain what the role of a confectionary buyer involves and the range of products she selects…the evening will include tasting samples.

Booths Supermarkets

“Our founder Edwin Henry Booth had one simple aim, to sell the best food and drink available, in attractive stores, staffed with first class assistants. Since 1847, we have worked closely with local suppliers from the Northern counties we call home: Lancashire, Cheshire, Cumbria and Yorkshire – Booths Country.” More information about Booths Supermarkets is on their website here



Non-members (gentlemen included) and members of other WI branches are welcome to attend at the cost of £5 on the door.
