Flower club demon­stra­tion blos­soms on past ex­pe­ri­ences

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

MEM­BERS of Prest­bury Flower Club were en­ter­tained by demon­stra­tor Wendy Grave­ston ear­lier this month and her session en­ti­tled ‘The Ap­pren­tice’, as she was be­fore tak­ing her demon­stra­tor’s test.

Wendy’s ar­range­ments re­flected var­i­ous times in her life, in­clud­ing when she was a make-up lady for an am­a­teur dra­mat­ics group and when she passed her driv­ing test.

And de­spite a chal­leng­ing start to the session, the de­ter­mined demon­stra­tor made sure ev­ery­one en­joyed it.

Les­ley Stafford, pro­gramme sec­re­tary, said: “As Wendy started she re­alised her turntable was bro­ken and quipped: ‘I’m glad I’m wear­ing pretty shoes for you to look at’. Then, un­per­turbed, she man­u­ally walked the ar­range­ments around for us all to see their con­struc­tion.”

Adding that the ar­range­ments were ‘lovely’, and that Wendy did flow­ers for her church, mak­ing use of the church fo­liage, Les­ley said: “She be­came in­volved via her dad with lo­cal am­a­teur dra­mat­ics as make-up lady, but man­aged to poke her dad in the eye while putting on his make-up.

“As a trib­ute to the stage spot­lights, she ar­ranged lovely white car­na­tions.”

The demon­stra­tion also in­volved a wheel trim at­tached to other metal car parts, re­mem­ber­ing the time when Wendy crashed her first car, ‘Gen­e­sis’, dur­ing learner train­ing from her dad, but then took lessons and passed her test first time.
