Breckland Flower and Garden Club celebrated their thirty-fifth anniversary in some style in Old Buckenham village hall on Thursday 13 April. There were a couple of birthday cakes, plenty of entertainment, food and drink.
Current members as well as previous members were arriving at 10am for coffee and a chance to chat to people they may not have seen for ages. The monthly competition for arrangements with the theme 'Ocean's treasure' were on display and the activities started with the presentation of a cheque for over £1250 to their nominated charity for the last year.

Jean Crane had come along to give a talk on 'Much Hadham and Moore', the story of the village where she was born, the changes that have taken place and her contact with sculptor Henry Moore when he moved into the village.Then it was time for a tasty buffet lunch with even more tasty sweets to follow.
The afternoon was 'A time to celebrate' with national demonstrator Julia Knights filling the hall stage with large colourful arrangements while entertaining the audience with tales of her life and clips of her favourite music. The arrangements provided some wonderful raffle prizes for those holding the lucky tickets.
The party finished with the cutting of the birthday cakes, slices of which were then distributed around along with some most welcomed cups of tea.
So what can we look forward to in five years time and a ruby party?
