Last week saw Girvan & District Flower Club’s last Demonstration of the season with the audience treated to a masterclass of Floral Art given by award winning demonstrator Elizabeth Forster from Kelso.

Elizabeth was a member of the SAFAS team who won a Gold Medal at Chelsea in 2013 so we were honoured to have her present her Demonstration “Around The World” to the club.

Indeed we did travel around the world as shown by her use of foliage of different types, their form texture and colour all highlighting the vibrant colours of her selection of flowers which ranged from orchids, anthuriums, proteas, agapanthus and various other stunning flowers as shown in her “Las Vegas” and “Hong Kong” arrangements.

The AGM chaired by Margaret Findlay preceded the Demonstration and Badges were handed over to new office bearers, Liz Gregg Chairman and Helen Walker Vice Chairman, Liz Gillan was voted and welcomed onto committee. The last event of the season “Coffee Evening & Blether” takes place in the Community Centre on Wednesday 24th June, there will be various stalls and donations for the Tombola stall will be most welcome, tickets costing £2 are available from committee members.
