    On Thursday 9th February North Ferriby Flower Club held their AGM followed by a most interesting talk by Peter Mathers from York who is the Web Master for the North East Area of NAFAS. His talk and slide show was on the History of Municipal Gardens in England. As expected because of his ability with computers etc. the photographs which accompanied his talk with excellent. The first Municipal Park in the country was opened in 1847 in Birkenhead. The idea of them was to give access to outside places for the population who at that time had no outside space or fresh air. This was also the idea for Municipal Libraries and Baths. Peter give us a tour of some beautiful parks including many in our area, with fascinating facts about them, including Museum Gardens York, Burnby Hall Gardens Pocklington, Pearson Park Hull, Queens Gardens Hull, Sewerby Hall Gardens Bridlington. Golden Acre Park Leeds, Temple Newsom Gardens Leeds and Harrogate Valley Gardens. It made us feel we cannot wait for Spring again to go and explore them!

    The Club has an exciting programme of demonstrations planned for this year, including two international demonstrators, these being Karl Wilde who now lives in France with a demonstration entitled “ An English Summer” and Florian from Holland. We also have workshops planned and a visit to the RHS Flower Show at Chatsworth in June. We have Lucy Smith from Richmond on 9th March with a demonstration entitled “Flotsam and Jetsam, and in April we have Elaine Bedford from Pickering with a demonstration entitled 2 Walking the Dogs”. At this meeting we are having a “bring a friend along for no guest charge” evening so we hope this will appeal to people thinking about trying the Flower Club.
