BSG Member Services

As well as the many activities we have coming up, we offer a range of exclusive services for members.

Members’ Magazine

The quarterly Sugarcraft magazine is mailed exclusively to British Sugarcraft Guild members.

“Sugarcraft News” includes skills files, hints and tips, a diary of forthcoming events, regional and branch reports on sugarcraft activities and important food safety updates, as well as members’ letters and many photographs.

We welcome members’ contributions for publication in the magazine by post to the BSG National Office or by email to: editor@bsguk.org

Demonstrator Training

Demonstrations are an important part of BSG activities and provide entertainment and instruction at Branch meetings.

The Demonstrator Training Scheme is for British Sugarcraft Guild members and helps those interested to learn the demonstration skills required to qualify as a BSG Accredited Demonstrator.

Before joining the scheme good sugarcraft skills are essential, followed closely by an interest in the developing of demonstration expertise and confidence to a professional level.

Our aim is to provide high quality and skilled demonstrations for presentation to Branches at their meetings and at exhibitions, etc. Trainees wishing to become BSG Accredited Demonstrators are supported throughout their training period by Demonstrator Training Team members who actively teach, support and guide them.

Judges

The BSG has a panel of industry respected judges, and our judging system has been perfected over many years. BSG judges are very sought after by other organisations for officiating at their competitions.

Our judges are trained from within the membership and are talented members who have won a number of awards in BSG competitions.

Competition guidelines are available from the National Office or can be purchased via our store.

Public and Product Liability Insurance   for resident UK Members only

The Guild offers members the opportunity to purchase public and product liability insurance cover at a discounted preferential rate.

Available at various levels and prices, this is for members pursuing sugarcraft as a part-time hobby with a turnover of less than £8,500 per annum.

The policy is available for our UK members to purchase either online or through local branches.

Additional information about Insurance cover

For resident UK Members only. The insurance is offered as an ‘umbrella policy’: The BSG has one policy that members pay to join, therefore, the cover has fixed start and end dates each year. The insurance year always runs from 1st May to 30th April. You can join at any time, but the premium and expiry date remain the same. The premium includes Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) at the prevailing rate and an administration fee.

For full information including limitations to this cover please read the Statement of Fact & Policy documents or contact BSG National Office.
