Breckland Flower and Garden Club

Celebrating with flowers

Brenda Tubb came to theAugust meeting and demonstrated her version of 'Celebrations'. These included Andy Murray's gold medal win at the Olympics - soft lilac roses and white carnations, the Queen's Jubilee - which included all white flowers with a bit of sparkle, the Norfolk Show (where she and Ann Norris won best in show), - a leafy handbag!, a 'hand-tied' gift for an anniversary and a beautiful vibrant red-flowered interpretation of the Olympic cauldron. Many thanks Brenda for a lovely afternoon.
Janet Skidmore won the Old Hands class with her version of 'Flying the Flag' and the table show for three stems of hot colour from the border was won by Christine Hewson.
The next meeting will take place at Old Buckenham Village Hall on Thursday 13 September when Jacquie Aldous will demonstrate 'That's Entertainment'. The competition will be 'My Favourite Film' with a title card and the Joan Fisher Trophy will be awarded for the best use of colour. The table show is for 'Harvest' - any flower, fruit or vegetable from your garden.
Visitors are always welcome. Further details from Sally on 788712.
