Flower and Garden Club
The December meeting of Breckland Flower and Garden Club in Old Buckenham village hall involved both tea and table arrangements. Members and guests had an enjoyable afternoon making colourful table arrangements with candles, ribbons and foliage and flowers. Joy Tunmore demonstrated in easy stages to ensure everyone present made a lovely display that they could take home. A cup of tea and a variety of goodies to eat rounded off this Christmas meeting.
The monthly competition was for a Christmas table arrangement on a cake stand. The New Hands winner was Susan Thurlow and for the Old Hands, Ursula Jackson and Shirley Penfold shared first place. The table show for three stems of foliage was won by Sylvia Briggs.
The first meeting in 2011 will take place on the Thursday 13 January at 2pm in Old Buckenham Village Hall when there will be an illustrated talk. The competition will be for an arrangement to incorporate a photo frame and using dried and/or preserved plant material. The table show will be for three stems of winter colour from the garden
