NEWS - Dazzling Diamond Luncheon

 

Norwich Flower Club celebrated the Diamond Anniversary of NAFAS, The National Association of Flower Arranging Societies to which we all are affiliated members, with a two-course lunch at Sprowston Manor Hotel. 

This was a very happy occasion, with an excellent meal enjoyed in the company of our flower friends. Our thanks to Committee member Jennifer Salman for making all the arrangements for us.

 

 

 

July Flower Demonstration by Vicki Hease

 

Following on from her last visit to our club, Vicki continued her story about her imaginary family, in flower arrangements 'Treasured Moments Part 2'.

She began with two designs depicting the arrival of twins, through redesigning their garden, adding an orangery, a holiday, the silver wedding anniversary and finishing with family Christmas parcels. We were all invited to suggest ideas as her story unfolded. Vicki is participating in the Flower Competitions at the Diamond Anniversry Show in London.

Fashion Show - Thursday 9th May

 

 

Our Artichoke Fashion Show was a very happy and successful occasion. Sarah Simonds from Artichoke and the team presented their fashions in style, with a catwalk and commentary. We must say a special 'thank you' to the models who took to the catwalk with great aplomb and to warm applause. After a delicious lunch served by the 'Dish and Spoon Company, we enjoyed an interesting talk by our Speaker Maria Pennington entitled 'Pearls my Passion'. The club will be making a donation from the proceeds of this event, to our President's chosen charity 'Cadfael'.  

 

NAFAS 1959 - 2019 

 

NAFAS has relaunched the Heritage Fund at the same time as we celebrate the Diamond Anniversary of NAFAS. It is suggested that we collect 5p coins towards this fund. There will be an opportunity at club meetings, to pop a coin into the special jars that have been decorated for this purpose. A 5p seems a small useless coin but when gathered together with donations from other clubs we can all make a difference.
