Annual Competition Results:
Flower of the Month:
Our 59th Annual General Meeting was held on 14th December 2017. Our Chairman Lesley Vanezis presented trophies to our competition winners for 2017: Janet Bourne - Flower of the Month, Del Guest – Novice Class, Debbie Clark - Intermediate Class and Lorna Hill - Advanced Class. Debbie now goes into the Advanced class.
Following the AGM, we were entertained by seven members of the club, Suzie Carter, Jean Govier, Del Guest, Margaret Shaw, Maureen Westwood, Angela Harvey and Debbie Clarke. Lorna Hill hosted the demonstrations and 11 beautiful Christmas arrangements were produced which were then raffled. We also held a bottle tombola and raffled an exquisite lap quilt, designed and sewn by Margaret Shaw. Following the demonstrations, eleven year old Emily Faulkner who is raising money for the charity ‘Every Heart Matters’, accepted a donation of £100.00 from Bromsgrove Flower Club. Michelle McKracken from Hereford and Worcester Air Ambulance, was also presented with a donation of £100.00.
The afternoon concluded with a Christmas Buffet Tea provided by the members of the committee.
We look forward to welcoming old and new members at our first meeting of the year which will take place on 15th of February 2018, when we will welcome Brigette Manton with a demonstration entitled “Make Do or Mend”. The monthly competition will be “Upcycling”.
