June Demonstration

Margaret Moores welcomed all members on a lovely summer evening.  

Margaret made several announcements and started by congratulating June Dwelly on her 90th birthday.  June a long standing club and committee member was presented with a beautiful bouquet.

Margaret also announced that club member Linda Porrett had won ‘gold’ at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for her floral arrangement, which was a great achievement.  The club had taken part in the Chichester Festival of Flowers with two exhibits in the Knave, representing Africa and Arabia.  We will have a stall at the 29 Market in Millers Barn on Thursday during the East Preston Festival.  And lastly, important information on the club going green, from this month the club will change from polystyrene to china mugs.

Once again the competition table was heaving with beautiful designs under the interesting title ‘I’ve got Rhythm’.

National Flower Demonstrator, Sue Flight, was then introduced by Margaret, Sue demonstrated under the title ‘Take Five’, because our lives are so busy sometimes we just need to ‘Take Five’.


Sue mentioned she likes to use flowers in season and produced six different style arrangements.  Among other flowers Sue used tulips, stock and yellow ‘hairy’ gerbera, plus wild flowers such as ground elder, which is very delicate and similar to cow parsley.

The club's forthcoming events: 

Summer Workshop in July and Wisley trip in September.
