Breckland Flower and Garden Club
The afternoon tea party held at Flaxley, Bunwell Street, in August was well attended and everyone enjoyed the good weather as well as the selection of sandwiches and cakes. Several decorated hats graced the occasion; the most imaginative was worn by Marjorie Greenwood, a lovely pink creation for which she was awarded the Rosemary Leeder Trophy.
Jenny Baker's demonstration at the September meeting illustrated her love of flowers, plants and gardening. Her colourful and neat arrangements were all ones which could fit into any home.
The competition table was well supported with 'plant and flower' (pot-et-fleur) designs. Pat Barton and Ursula Jackson were equal top in the Old Hands class and Margaret Smith won the New Hands class and was presented with the Joan Fisher Trophy for the best use of colour.
The October meeting will be held on Thursday 8 October at Old Buckenham Village Hall at 2pm. John and Ann Bridge will illustrate their talk 'Glories of the Garden'. The competition will be for an arrangement in a kitchen container and the Barbara Fisher Trophy to be awarded for the best modern exhibit.
