We had a fun, social evening at the April clubnight. The evening started with a delicious fish and chip supper and was followed by a group flower arranging challenge. Each table was provided with the same bunch of flowers and there was a large collection of foliage to choose from which members had donated. We had about 20mins within our groups to present a finished flower arrangement. There was quite a variety of shapes, with some groups doing a horizontal arrangement, some doing a triangular arrangement and others doing a round domed shape. At the end we each had a vote to decide our favourite and the arrangements were included as raffle prizes. Do take a look at our facebook page to see photos of the different designs. Finally the evening finished with an auction. Thank you to everyone who brought items to sell and to those successful bidders for supporting the event. We raised £91.

 

 

COMING UP...............

 

Our demonstrator at the 7th May meeting is Eleanor Bracken with the 'Magic of Spring'. Eleanor is a popular demonstrator and has been to our club before so we know we are in for a special treat.

Don't forget, also on Tuesday we are holding our plant sale. I hope you have been nursing your seedlings through to young plants or have been dividing up your perennials and have set a clump aside to sell at the plant sale. Do bring them along on Tuesday.

 

The show schedule is now available for our Summer Show; All on a Summer's Day, being held on Saturday 29th June. It was available at the April clubnight but if you weren't with us in April, please pick up your copy from Monica and be thinking about which classes to enter.

 

Unfortunately we did not get enough people signed up for our coach outing to Chichester Cathedral Flower Festival planned for Friday 7th June , so disappointingly we have had to take the decision to cancel this. We will look into further options for a future event.
