Breckland Flower and Garden Club

Twigs and tulips at AGM

The AGM was held at the March meeting. Club membership had increased during the year and all had enjoyed a mixed programme of flower arranging and garden demonstrations and talks.
Pat Wells had completed her three year term of office as chairman and handed over to Sally Westrup. Olive Heppel passed on the president's badge to Pat Wells. Pat, Olive and Ann Norris, who also stepped down from the committee, were thanked for all their hard work for the Club.
Janet Skidmore gained most points during the year in the New Hands Class with Alison Walker second while Shirley Penfold gained the most points in the Old Hands class with Sylvia Briggs second.
The President's cup for overall points for flower arranging was won by Shirley Penfold who also accumulated the most points in the table show.
The AGM was followed by a workshop led by Christine Hewson who showed how to make a design - twigs and tulips - with very colourful results.
The next meeting is the Club's Pearl Anniversary (members only) which will be held at Old Buckenham Village Hall commencing 10.30am for a welcome coffee. There will be a talk on the history of pearls in the morning, a buffet lunch will be served and Nick Grounds will be demonstrating in the afternoon followed by afternoon tea.
The competition title is 'Celebration Cocktail' and the table show is for a vase of spring blooms from the garden.
In the March competitions, Alison Walker was first in the table show and also first in the New Hands flower arranging. Pat Wells was first in the Old Hands section.
