Spring flowers

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
The Annual General Meeting was held in March when Pat Wells was re-elected chairman and eleven members voted onto the committee plus one co-opted member. The chairman thanked everyone for all their help during a busy twelve months including two charity events which raised a total of £2500. The out-going president Marion Beasley thanked the committee for all their hard work and passed the president's badge to Joyce Woodward.
Winners trophies for the year were presented to Margaret Smith (New Hands) and Ursula Jackson (Old Hands) and the President's cup for most points gained during the year went to Margaret Smith.
After the AGM Christine Hewson gave a demonstration using spring flowers - daffodils, tulips and hyacinths - light, fresh designs suitable for any home. During tea members took part in a light-hearted quiz.
The March competition winners were Janet Skidmore (New Hands) and Ursula Jackson (Old Hands).
The next meeting will be held on Thursday 8 April at 2pm in Old Buckenham Village Hall when 'The Flower Girls' will be demonstrating. The competition will be for a modern arrangement using three flowers and foliage.
Visitors are always welcome. Further details can be obtained from Pat on 01953 457305 or Sally on 01953 788712.
