Flowers March 4th.

March 5, 2013

Last night Elaine and I went to the Southbourne Village Hall to spend the evening with the Emsworth & District Flower Society.

This was the second time that we had been to one of their meetings, and the main attraction was a demonstration of flower arranging.

Before the demonstration Elaine was asked to present two awards to members of the Society. The Chairman, Elma Eckett, then presented a cheque to a representative of the local branch of the Multiple Sclerosis Society. This was the charity of the society for the past year, and the cheque was for £1618. A wonderful sum to raise for a very worthwhile cause.

The demonstration of flower arranging was well worth waiting for, and some wonderful displays were created with little apparent effort, and using simple things in which to create them, such as cardboard tubes and baked bean cans!
