Members’ designs for Christmas fair
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.
