Another blooming meeting

Film titles in flowers
Members of the Breckland Flower and Garden Club braved the elements to attend the February meeting in the village hall when Julie Woods from Cambridge demonstrated her title 'Pass the Popcorn'. Her six arrangements depicted film titles including ‘South Pacific’ and ‘Pretty Woman’ and her flowers included orchids, anthuriums, mimosa and red roses.
The competition subject was 'Crazy Love' and the results were: New Hands - first Margaret Smith, second Norma Howes and third Janet Skidmore. Old Hands - Ursula Jackson, Shirley Penfold and Trish Barton tied for first place and Marion Beasley came second. Ursula Jackson was awarded the Christine HewsonTrophy for Best Exhibit.
Next month's meeting will be held at Old Buckenham Village Hall starting at 2pm on Thursday 12 March. The AGM will be followed by a practical exercise for all - making a pressed-flower bookmark. Please bring along any pressed flowers that you have.
The competition title is 'Spring has arrived' and the best exhibit including spring flowers will be awarded the Joy Tunmore Trophy.
