Fes­tive flower work­shop in Queen of Peace

Bray People - - News -

BRAY CAN­CER SUP­PORT held a very suc­cess­ful Christ­mas flower work­shop last Fri­day morn­ing at Villa Pacis in the Queen of Peace.

The par­tic­i­pants, aged be­tween 40 and 96, made cen­tre-pieces for their Christ­mas din­ner ta­bles. Each of the ladies was shown how to make the pieces by Ros­aleen Kilkenny in an ini­tial demon­stra­tion.

They were then pro­vided with a base, the green­ery and can­dles to com­plete the fes­tive ta­ble dec­o­ra­tions. The class, which is al­ways hugely pop­u­lar amongst clients, was at­tended by ei­ther those who had suf­fered from can­cer or their fam­ily mem­bers. Cen­tre Man­ager Veron­ica O’Leary said that the so­cial as­pect of the morn­ing was very im­por­tant to peo­ple who might find them­selves lonely and iso­lated at this time of year.

She added that the men who at­tend the gar­den project at Fes­tine Lente are mak­ing Christ­mas wreaths this year, and said that they too find the com­pany of the project in­valu­able. She re­marked that any­one can go up to the gar­den without ac­tu­ally hav­ing to do any gar­den­ing.

Trans­port was pro­vided for those mak­ing the beau­ti­ful cen­tre-pieces.
