This month, we welcomed 42 members and 23 visitors to our first demonstration of the year, “Titanic - Ship of Dreams”, by National Demonstrator Nigel Whyles from Telford. Nigel last came to us in April 2013 and gave a wonderful demonstration, so we knew we were going to have a very entertaining afternoon! He made six beautiful arrangements, each of which had more than one placement, or could be split into two for the raffle at the end of the afternoon.
This month we also awarded the yearly trophies for the competitions:
