This month, we welcomed 44 members and 16 visitors to our first demonstration of the year, “Paradise is a Garden”, by National Demonstrator Tony Brown, from Leicestershire. Tony has been to us twice before, the first time in 2008, and again in 2010, so we knew we were going to have a very entertaining afternoon! He gave us a wonderful demonstration, making nine beautiful arrangements which were raffled at the end of the afternoon.
