Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

SPRING was in the air at Prest­bury Flower Club when they wel­comed demon­stra­tor Lor­raine Sim­cox.

Lor­raine treated the club to spring fo­liage from her gar­den or from the al­lot­ment with an ar­range­ment de­pict­ing the hedgerows in spring.

Her demon­stra­tion ti­tle was ‘All Kinds of Every­thing’.

Les­ley Stafford, pro­gramme sec­re­tary, said: “She in­ter­preted this as the colours of her bowls and vases were for­ever be­ing changed by spray­ing the con­tain­ers to suit the flower ar­range­ments.”

“She told us flow­ers mean dif­fer­ent things across the world and of a mis­take she made with her Ital­ian sis­ter-in-law by bring­ing a gift of white chrysan­the­mums for the house.

“Her sis­ter-in-law strongly re­fused to let them in be­cause they meant death!

“Lor­raine did not say what she did with that ar­range­ment but it did not go into the house.”

The demon­stra­tor then judged the first club com­pe­ti­tion for novices for the San­der­son tro­phy with the ti­tle ‘Signs of Spring’.

Les­ley added: “The pres­i­dent was de­lighted to see a good en­try of lovely bright ar­range­ments in the vil­lage hall.”

The next meet­ing of the flower club is on Wed­nes­day, May 4, when the demon­stra­tor will be Wendy Grave­ston with her ti­tle ‘The Apprentice’.

Vis­i­tors are also wel­come to the demon­stra­tions, which be­gin at 1.45pm at Prest­bury Vil­lage Hall. En­trance for guests is £5.
