    North Ferriby Flower Club held their August meeting on Thursday 10th when we welcomed National Demonstrator Neil Whittaker from Manchester to our Open Meeting. Neil has represented the U.K. around the world and now flies across to Shanghai many times a year to teach. In 2010 he came 3rd in the Europa Cup in the Czech Republic, the highest position ever achieved by a British Florist. He has won 3 Gold Medals at Chelsea and been the Chelsea Florist of the year – all among his many other achievements. We were really lucky he could fit in a visit to North Ferriby in his busy life!

    The stage looked amazing and very colourful at the end of the evening with a huge variety of amazing containers and structures all made by Neil all filled with fabulous flowers and foliage, He did 7 arrangements in total and explained everything as he went along in a very interesting and amusing style of presentation. Every arrangement was so different in style and shape and used a fantastic array of wonderful flowers including allium, lily, carnation, hydrangea, anthurium, rose, gerbera, gladioli etc.The colour scheme in each arrangements was amazing and had a wonderful choice of greenery. What a wonderful evening and the stage looked magical with the containers filled with such fabulous arrangements. Everyone wanted to win on the raffle and many sighed were heard as each one was won!
