Hungarian Meeting

Details have been added of an exchange meeting in Hungary at the end of August 2018.

Updates

Some updates have been made to the SUGARCAT pages.

First, a few packets have been removed because they are not from the UK and various other corrections have been made. I am grateful to Pam Miller for pointing these out.

Secondly, the UK sets page has been changed so that the list of sets with graphics is now the top item, followed by set comparisons and then the list without graphics.  Previously the list of sets with graphics took a long time to load hence the third change.

Thirdly, the list of set, showing pictures of the packets, now shows just five most recent sets. But there is now the option to select which sets to see. Simply collecing the search button without any other options will show the full list.  But it is also possible to select which type of packet from a drop down list and also to enter some text to search for. For example entering the text pucc would show all the Puccino’s sets. Of course it is also possible to see all the Puccino’s sets from the sets comparison page.

Packets Added

A further 93 packets have been added to the SUGARCAT database

These came from the recent UKSC Exchange meeting and quite a few were given to me by Pam Miller. However, I am not 100% sure about which was which.

For those who like to know these things (probably only me) there are now 10,687 packets on teh database and 403 entries in the sets list.

I haven’t added any packets which were given to me and appear to be New Finds - I will be processing those for Issue 93 in January/February.

Tate & Lyle numbers list

For a long time Pam Miller has been compiling a list of the numbers printed on the old Tate and Lyle lump wrappers.  Pam has occassionally published a list of missing numbers in Sweet Thoughts and then provided updates as new ones were identified.

A list has now been added to the members’ area of the website showing all then numbers from 1 to 2571 and the few from 6070 to 6076. The list indidates whether the number is known or missing and where I have the details the name on the wrapper is given.

If one or more wrappers are on the SUGARCAT database for this number then a link is given which will list them.  In some cases there are wrappers with no number printed but their design number is known whilst in others there are several of the same design one or more of which may not have a number on.

There is also a link at the bottom to show all the wrappers on the database for which I currently don’t know the number. It may be that Pam does have the number for some of these.

I will be endeavouring to keep this and the other T&L wrappers page up to date as wrappers are added to the database or Pam issues updates to her list.
