Janet saves the day af­ter ill­ness strikes

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

MEM­BERS and guests of Prest­bury Flower Club wel­comed demon­stra­tor Janet James for the club’s first meet­ing of the year.

Janet stepped in when Lorena Dyer, who was due to speak, was taken ill at the last minute. She was able to use Lorena’s equip­ment and flow­ers to cre­ate a ‘jew­ellery box of flow­ers’ to rep­re­sent the theme ‘di­a­monds are for­ever’.

Pam Pig­gott, from the club, said: “The day was saved by Janet who used the flow­ers and equip­ment pre­pared in ad­vance by Lorena for her ex­cel­lent, amus­ing, in­for­ma­tive and very pro­fes­sional demon­stra­tion.

“Lorena’s hus­band chauf­feured Janet to the venue from the Mid­lands at the last minute, so many thanks to him for res­cu­ing a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion.”

At the end of the meet­ing the flower dis­plays were raf­fled off, with nine mem­bers go­ing home with a dis­play.

The flower club meets on the first Wed­nes­day of the month at Prest­bury Vil­lage Hall. The next meet­ing is on April 5, with guest speaker Karen Schofield with her pre­sen­ta­tion ‘Sea­son to In­spire’. There will also be a club com­pe­ti­tion for novices who have not pre­vi­ously won a com­pe­ti­tion, with the ti­tle ‘Burst­ing into Spring’.
