As the result of the National Federation of Women’s Institute’s 2010 resolution on Country of Origin Labelling [COOL] and Handbridge member Sybil Graham’s involvement with the NFWI Public Affairs Committee in recent years, she and fellow members of Handbridge WI were invited to take part in a discussion about the COOL mandate.
On Friday, February 13. a BBC Countryfile team of five, including presenter Tom Heap, filmed in Sybil’s kitchen in Queen’s Park, Chester.
Recent labelling proposals for processed foods were discussed, while Tom baked a Victoria sandwich, guided by the chair of NFWI Public Affairs Marylyn Haines-Evans.
Secretary Veronica Bull said: “Members had a most interesting morning and Tom’s cake, by the way, was delicious!”
The programme will be screened on Sunday, March 1 at 7pm.
