April Demonstration

No automatic alt text available.


Chairman Margaret Moores opened the meeting and welcomed members and all visitors. 

The club announcements made members aware of the bargains to be obtained from the Sales Table with most items being reduced in price and that the trip to Pashley Manor on the 4th May was now nearly full.

It was noted how lovely the competition table looked, which was full of multi-coloured displays and judged by Graham King.

Margaret then introduced our demonstrator for the evening Graham King who received a very warm welcome back to the club.  His theme for the evening was ‘April Showers’.

Graham who this year celebrates twenty five years as a qualified Surrey Area Demonstrator and is currently Chairman of his club in Godalming produced six beautiful arrangements.  Graham worked with unusual containers mainly all homemade creations, used striking vibrantly coloured flowers, and some unusual ones including a deep orange hued Kangaroo’s paw, Anigozanthos, native of Southern Australia.  He incorporated many handmade accessories crafted from various non plant items to produce artificial leaves and decorative objectives.  Graham’s designs were all unique, some very simple, and all extremely effective.

The clubs forthcoming events:

The club will be donating floral displays to a select few establishments in East Preston to celebrate National Flower Arranging Day on 4th May and looking forward to an outing to Pashley Manor Tulip Festival in May.
