Derbyshire Life - - Event -

Jonathan is very much loved by all our Der­byshire WI mem­bers. His cheeky asides al­ways en­sure gales of laugh­ter, whilst his in­valu­able tips are re­mem­bered and utilised long af­ter his demon­stra­tions have fin­ished, so it is no sur­prise that a flower ar­rang­ing day or­gan­ised by our Home Eco­nom­ics sub-com­mit­tee at his unique Flower School was well at­tended.

Held at Cliff Col­lege in Calver shortly be­fore Christ­mas, mem­bers were shown how to make easy bou­quets, wreaths to adorn doors, sim­ple but de­light­ful Christ­mas ta­ble ar­range­ments and also some breath­tak­ing show-stop­pers.

Ad­vice was given about the best types of green­ery to use, how to en­sure that all cut ma­te­rial lasted as long as pos­si­ble and how to in­cor­po­rate gourds into a dis­play. Cliff Col­lege then pro­vided a de­li­cious lunch, af­ter which all of the ar­range­ments were raf­fled off.

There was cer­tainly much amuse­ment af­ter­wards with some of the lucky win­ners try­ing to fit flower ar­range­ments al­most as big as them­selves into their cars.
