“Summertime” demonstration by Anne Whysall, 15th May 2023

81 members and 8 visitors enjoyed Anne’s unique arrangements and her suggestions for alternatives to floral foam.

Thanks to Judith Daws for her foyer flower arrangements, to Pat Jacques for her vote of thanks, and to the other members who helped at the demonstration.  Apologies for the issues experienced by some members with the car park machine, sadly this is down to Cheltenham Borough Council and despite their best efforts there appears to be nothing further that the committee can do to resolve this.

“Welcome to Spring” – a floral competition

Many thanks to everybody who entered this April Club competition. Congratulations to judges choice winners, Di Roe and Mandy Edwards and members choice winners Judith Daws and Vicki Atherton.

Andrew Lloyd – Demonstration 6th March 2023

Andrew’s wonderful demonstration was given a standing ovation by the 89 members and 15 visitors who attended this early March meeting.
