Winter flower arranging

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
Breckland club members finished their year of charity fund raising with a Christmas festival at Saint Andrews Church, Quidenham. Carols and songs were depicted in Christmas foliage and flowers. The event was organised to raise funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance in memory of past founder member and Saint Andrews church warden and PCC secretary, Rosemary Leeder, from Old Buckenham.
Rosemary had supported many organisations in the area over many years and members and friends were invited to support the event. The sum of £1000 was raised and presented to the Air Ambulance at the Flower Club’s January meeting.
A flower arranging demonstration followed at the January meeting. The title was ‘Winter nights’ and was presented by Christine Hewson. Her designs were for a winter wedding, an evening in front of the television and a nice warm fire.
At the next meeting in February the flower arranging demonstration will be given by Dolcie Lofting to the theme of ‘In the beginning’.
Meetings are held at Old Buckenham village hall in Abbey Road and start at 2pm. For further details please contact the chairman Pat on 01953 457305 or the secretary Sally on 01953 788712.
