Breckland Flower and Garden Club
Helen Bird visited the club for its April meeting and she ably demonstrated her 'Passion for Flowers' using lovely spring colours of yellows and reds together with some unusual containers.
The competition 'Nostalgia - a tribute to the founder of modern-day flower arranging Julia Clements using a pin holder - was won by Shirley Penfold (Old Hands) and Janet Skidmore (New Hands). The best exhibit award also went to Shirley Penfold.
Members decorated 'hats for Easter' for the table show which was won by Margaret Smith whose creation included woven willow and spring flowers.
The May meeting will be held at Old Buckenham Village Hall on Thursday 12 May starting at 2pm when 'Feel the Passion' will be the title of Ann Colny's demonstration. The competition - a continental design - 'Maytime' and the table show will be for a stem of blossom.
Visitors are always welcome to the meetings. Further information from Pat on 457305 or Sally on 788712.
