The first meeting of the year was held on Monday, January 27, and saw this year’s President, Mrs Margaret Rose Lyle, ably assuming the role of demonstrator.
The title of her talk was ‘The Winter Garden’. Using a profusion of colourful flowers, Margaret Rose produced a series of deceptively simple, yet effective arrangements. When she finished she provided materials for willing participants to ‘have a go’ at reproducing what she had shown. This was followed by the usual cup of tea and a warm vote of thanks to Margaret Rose from Gladys Bustin.
The next meeting on February 24 brings the welcome return of Mark Crawford whose theme is ‘Exhibit for Class 79’.
