Flower-loving locals gained some useful flower arranging tips from floral designer Sue Blandford recently.
Pocklington Flower Club invited Sue, a national demonstrator for the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS), to the club’s meeting earlier this month, where she held a demonstration called ‘Believe in Magic’.
Sue travelled all the way from South Wales for the meeting at Woldgate College in Pocklington, which attracted about 140 people.
A tombola was held at the meeting, with prizes donated by members of the flower club. £400 raised from the tombola has been given to the British Heart Foundation.
In addition, those who attended the event enjoyed sherry and mince pies.
Eileen Ducker, secretary of the flower club, said: “It was excellent. There was a good turnout.
“The demonstration was well received.” The flower club’s next meeting is on 10 February at Woldgate, starting at 7.30pm. If you are interested in joining the club, call Eileen on 01430 873677 or 07739919340.
