George V Playing Field

Heather Hayes from Bolton kept us highly amused with her typical Lancashire humour. While arranging beautiful flowers she told us of problems encountered when going to arrange flowers at Westminster Abbey. She also gave us an amusing description of returning home after a demonstration in Hull when the motorway had been closed and no diversion signs set up.
Heathers title was "With Beauty in Mind". She used opposites from the colour wheel to great effect and had some unusual containers.
Design 1 was purple anthuriums and yellow roses in an arch made from a bike tyre inner,
Her 2nd design was in a conventional urn and contained purple cymbidium orchids along with off-white calla lilies.
Design 3 was a 2 tier white cascade arrangement of palms, Singapore orchids and carnations.
For her 4th design Heather had a large wooden construction with a shelf for the flowers. This represented a fence. Shed phormium and fatsia leaves with the attractive combination of purple alliums and yellow gerbera.
The final design was again complementary colours but this time green and red. She had a very large piece of driftwood placed horizontally and into the design placed palms, green anthuriums and red berries.
The demonstrators request that we only photograph some complete designs and parts of others. If you like what you see and would like to see all complete arrangements you can join us in the Edna Rose room at the Community Centre at 7-30pm on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. This will obviously be once we resume normal activities. We have cancelled our April, May and June meetings and will keep you all informed of our plans as soon as these are decided.
