Mem­bers’ de­signs for Christ­mas fair

Waihi Leader - - News - By VERA GROVER

An in­ter­est­ing meet­ing with var­i­ous events com­ing up at which we will be par­tic­i­pat­ing.

An Area Day on Oc­to­ber 4 at Nga¯tea or­gan­ised by the Thames flo­ral art club re­quires our as­sis­tance be­cause they have very few mem­bers.

Our com­pe­ti­tion ti­tle for the day was Any Old Iron which was quite a chal­lenge.

The re­sults were: In­ter­me­di­ate: 1st Doreen Spain. Se­nior: 1st Kay Sav­age, 2nd Jen­nifer Chap­pel. Pre­mier: 1st Mar­ion Hunter, 2nd Dianne Con­nelly-Cook, 3rd Bar­bara Gadd. Supreme: 1st Vicky Young­man, 2nd Vera Gover, 3rd Pam Moore. It was Jen­nifer’s de­sign which was cre­ated on the head of a rake that was judged the Most In­no­va­tive.

The af­ter­noon work­shop en­ti­tled The Wave with Dawn Grif­fiths was a sil­hou­ette of lines and del­i­cate flow­ers.

Also the club have been asked to do flo­ral ar­range­ments at Athen­ree Homestead for their Christ­mas Fair com­ing up in Novem­ber.

We are also busy or­gan­is­ing flo­ral ar­range­ments for the large dis­play re­quired in the Me­mo­rial Hall for Ar­mistice Day cel­e­bra­tions which will take place in Novem­ber too. Ar­range­ments are re­quired to be there for sev­eral weeks so ar­ti­fi­cial flow­ers are hav­ing to be cre­ated and a work­shop in Katikati took place on Septem­ber 24 to work on mak­ing wooden and pa­per flow­ers.

First Se­nior was Kay Sav­age.

Se­cond and most in­no­va­tive was Jen­nifer Chap­pel.

Mar­ion Hunter’s flo­ral ar­range­ment came first in the Pre­mier sec­tion.

First In­ter­me­di­ate was Doreen Spain.


Vicky Young­man’s cre­ation placed first Supreme.
