Old Buckenham's flower club

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
The New Year commenced with a Bangers and Mash lunch cooked by the committee which was followed by a talk by Norma Howes entitled 'It only holds my sandwiches'. Dressed in pinstriped suit, bowler hat and carrying a furled umbrella (not to mention a colourful pair of earrings) Norma talked about her working life spent with the Inland Revenue. She recounted many amusing incidents as well as some historical facts about taxing but left no doubts that the taxman always gets his dues.
Alison Walker won both the New Hands class and the table show this month.
The next meeting will be held at Old Buckenham Village Hall on Thursday 13 February commencing at 2pm. Christine Hewson will be instructing on how to make a Valentine's arrangement. Those attending should bring scissors and a table cover together with some ivy leaves, a small amount of foliage, some small flowers and a clay flower pot - other items will be provided at no cost. The competition title is 'Hearts and Flowers'.
Visitors are always welcome - further details from Sally 01953 788712.
