Our November meeting is usually a fun evening when members can get together over a glass of wine or coffee and watch ‘experts’ create something. Last night was no exception. Our ex Chairman, Val Kaye, demonstrated how to make Christmas wreaths. Val made three very different wreaths which were modern and traditional – pleasing all our members!

Later in the evening we had Judy, from ‘Sugar and Spice’ show us how to make Christmas decorations in icing. Lots of our members had a go and the results were very impressive. I am sure they will be using their new skill to decorate a cake for this Christmas. Judy has a shop in Cottingham and does many Workshops throughout the year – even teaching children as young as 5.

We have an Open Meeting on 13th December when Andrew Grisewood will be demonstrating. Andrew is an international demonstrator. He has called his demonstration “Unwrap the Season”. I am sure this will be a very enjoyable evening. Tickets are £10 for non members and can be obtained from Margaret Hobson on 01482 634114.

    Our programme of events ended with a wonderful demonstration by JONATHAN MOSELEY. He filled the stage with colour, style and the wow factor! An experienced National Demonstrator of 21 years, Jonathan is internationally renowned, a television judge, and the Chatsworth floral arranger. Using many different materials, harmonious colour tones and dramatic containers, Jonathan created a symphony of colour. He created a starburst arrangement using champagne coloured bamboo sticks, cotoneaster rothschildianus and rhapis palm. A black glass vase with white fragrant genista, double lime eustoma and birch twigs amongst other flowers were used to highlight the stage. Birch bark covered boxes were filled with deep purple brassicas, the beautiful lilac coloured rosa lullaby and the pirouette clematis. The stage was a festive delight!

    It was an evening of entertainment and relaxation. A fitting end for our 50th Anniversary Year!
