In spite of beautiful 'gardening weather' many members attended the October meeting when Dulcie Lofting demonstrated her title 'Simplicity'. She brought with her a varied selection of autumn-coloured foliage from her garden and with small number of flowers she created six stunning designs proving that 'less can be more'. She encouraged members to pick from the garden, or use just one bunch of bought flowers, to compose our arrangements.
In the competitions Sylvia Briggs won the Old Hands Class, Sandra Sandford was first in New Hands and also winner of the monthly cup. The table show was won by Ursula Jackson.
Next month’s meeting will be held on Thursday 12 November in Old Buckenham Village Hall starting at 2pm. The demonstrator will be Vicke Hease and her title 'That's what it's for!'. The competition will be for an arrangement in a favourite container - the monthly cup being awarded for the best use of garden plant material. The table show subject will be for a 'Dried and/or preserved collection'.
