Flower dis­plays cel­e­brated dance

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

THE beauty of dance in­spired the lat­est demon­stra­tion en­joyed by flower club mem­bers.

Lynn Pick­ens, who was part of a team that won a gold medal at Tat­ton Park last year, was the guest demon­stra­tor at Prest­bury Flower Club this month, re­turn­ing for the sec­ond time.

Club mem­ber Pam Pig­gott said: “Early in her ca­reer Lynn had been a dancer and she tried to ex­press, through her flower demon­strat­ing, the beauty of dance.

“Her first dis­play was called ‘Twist and Shout’ us­ing some lovely an­thuri­ums, the sec­ond dis­play ex­pressed her feel­ing to­wards the Fla­menco, which she had stud­ied for a year.

“A homage to Darcey Bus­sell fol­lowed, based on a statue of two bal­leri­nas. A piece of drift­wood from Run­corn beach was the ma­jor part of the dis­play, ex­press­ing the rumba.

“The Amer­i­can smooth, with its post war el­e­gance, was next and bur­lesque – a feather boa with a dra­matic vase full of pink hy­drangeas – con­cluded the demon­stra­tion, which was en­joyed by all.”

The club will hold a com­pe­ti­tion for the Jessie Kite Petite Tro­phy at its next meet­ing on Wed­nes­day, June 7, with guest demon­stra­tor Zena Stone.
