On Wednesday evening we were shown a very different approach to flower design when we had Christie's Flowers from Winsford for our meeting.

The results may look similar but watching a florist work is so interesting and quite different from watching a flower arranger. They work so quickly and adeptly. The way she made the hand-tied bouquets was really impressive. Some of us in the audience have tried to do these but with little success! I was lucky enough to win her Tropical bouquet.

Flower Club Oct3

The designs included a white arrangement in a basket, a posy in a glass cube, an all round design in shades of pink and mauve and the hand-tied bouquets.
The flowers were all beautiful (as one would expect from a florist's shop) and we all enjoyed an entertaining evening.

When I need flowers for a special occasion this is the shop that I will use.

Our next meeting is on November 11th when Nigel Whyles will entertain us with his version of " Christmas." I am sure it will be quite a spectacle on the stage of the Community Centre Main Hall. There will also be stalls selling Christmas gifts (Pots and hanging baskets of bulbs/herbs; Christmas cakes,Christmas puddings) and a Bring and Buy stall. Mince pies will be served with the tea/coffee. Should be a good evening so please bring friends.

On November 30th the Christmas workshop to make a door wreath will take place . To book a place or find out more call 01829 740832

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...
