Flower club shaken and stirred by Bondthemed showcase

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

PREST­BURY Flower Club en­joyed a demon­stra­tion all about au­thor Ian Flem­ing’s most fa­mous cre­ation – fic­tional spy James Bond.

The showcase, which was put on by demonstrator and pres­i­dent of Shrews­bury Flower Club, Nigel Whyles, was en­ti­tled ‘007: Shaken Not Stirred’.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, and while dressed im­pec­ca­bly in suit, waist­coat and bow tie, Nigel showed off var­i­ous flo­ral ar­range­ments all based on some of the most iconic 23 bond films.

As a spe­cial ac­com­pa­ni­ment to his flo­ral cin­e­matic homage, he also added Shirley Bassey’s iconic theme tunes as he il­lus­trated dis­plays based around the films Goldfin­ger, Moon­raker and Di­a­monds Are For­ever.

The award-win­ning florist also helped judge one of the club’s com­pe­ti­tions - ‘ Bon­fire Night’ – which asked mem­bers and vis­i­tors to have a go at cre­at­ing a bon­fire-themed dis­play them­selves.

Les­ley Stafford, the group’s pro­gramme sec­re­tary, said: “After Nigel picked out the dis­play he thought best ex­em­pli­fied what the night is all about, the even­tual win­ner An­gela His­cott then re­ceived her trophy from club Pres­i­dent Lu­ci­enne Nicoll.”

The club meets on the first Wed­nes­day of ev­ery month at Prest­bury Vil­lage Hall, start­ing at 1.45pm.

The next meet­ing, a pre­sen­ta­tion on ‘ Trav­eller’s Tales’ by Denise Hub­bard, will cost £5 to at­tend and guests are wel­come.
