●● PREST­BURY Flower Club en­joyed two great events dur­ing Septem­ber.

The first demon­stra­tion was by Anne Hinde, a na­tional demonstrator from Orm­skirk, and was en­ti­tled ‘High­lights’.

Anne is well known for her com­pe­ti­tion work, most re­cently at South­port Flower Show and in Dublin at the World As­so­ci­a­tion Show, where her ex­hibit won a com­mended award.

Les­ley Stafford, the group’s pro­gramme sec­re­tary, said: “She also trav­els widely and gave an in­ter­est­ing in­sight into demon­strat­ing in Ja­pan.

“She re­vealed that their work is ex­act copies from books, which they re­vere, and demon­stra­tors are held in high es­teem as ex­perts.”

The club also held a work­shop led by Jonathon Mose­ley from BBC’s Al­lot­ment Chal­lenge, dur­ing which he taught peo­ple how to cre­ate a flower ar­range­ment box from roof in­su­la­tion.

Les­ley said: “The won­der­ful re­sults can be kept and used for many ar­range­ments.”

The club meet on the first Wed­nes­day of ev­ery month at Prest­bury Vil­lage Hall, start­ing at 1.45pm. The next meet­ing will cost £5 to at­tend and takes place on Oc­to­ber 1.
