Our first demonstration of the year by Sue Bradley from Nantwich was quite different in it's title "The Beauty of Lines". Having an acre of cultivated garden she used much garden foliage and also some early flowering shrubs.

Her 1st design showed straight lines of beautiful off-white roses in a straight sided container.

Design 2 was on an elegant piece of driftwood and depicted the lines of a ballet dancer in several shades of pink.

Lines of communication were displayed on 2 screens and used the colours from electrical wiring. She cleverly did 2 similar designs, one with roses and the second with proteas to show transfer from Britain to South Africa.

Sue produced three more designs.

A walk along a the garden path had spring flowers and garden material showing lines in nature.

Lines from a poem by A.E.Housman showed the lines of the sun at sunset to produce a stunning design.

And finally the lines of print that had alerted Sue to a course on flower arranging. Her green design was a reminder of that course.

February 11th will be our next meeting, when we welcome Diane Fair, our local, national demonstrator. This should be an excellent evening and visitors are very welcome. We start at 7-30

In June 1991 villagers refused to be downhearted by what was described as "appalling weather" and hence helped to still raise £1,500 at the 20th Tarvin Carnival. Despite what at time amounted to torrential rain the show went on with the then traditional parade of floats round the village, with the first prize going to the Tarvin Primary School. Again in those days, there was the...
