Brightening a winter's day in Old Buckenham

Breckland Flower and Garden Club
The first meeting of the club in the new year was very well supported. The dull day was brightened by a talk with slides by Tim Fuller from Plantsman's Preference of South Lopham.
His  knowledge of plants and soils was very useful, with members purchasing some beautiful plants that Tim had brought along with him.
The monthly competition was an arrangement 'To brighten a winter's day' and the winner of the Kitty Patrick trophy was Alison Vivien.
The Club's charity for 2015/16 is the dementia cafe in Wymondham. The money raised has been boosted by the sale of tickets to win an Easter egg, pennies in jars and the sale of flower arranging and gardening books.
The next meeting will be at 2pm on Thursday 11 February in Old Buckenham Village Hall. All are welcome to attend (visitors £4). There will be a flower arranging demonstration by Crystal Dyball with the title 'Floral Passion' and the competition will be for a modern design using tulips.
For further information contact the Club's chairman, Christine Hewson, on 01953 454528.
