On 5th November, a group of 9 members made their way down to Broxbourne Civic Centre in Hertfordshire for the annual NAFAS Area lunch. After coffee and browsing the various trade stalls, we entered the main hall for lunch. However, the highlight of the day was the afternoon demonstration presented by Sandra Bailey and entitled “Warmth, richness and merriment”.
It was a really entertaining afternoon, with much laughter and some spectacular arrangements with colourful and exotic flowers. Unfortunately no-one from the Bedford Club was lucky enough to win any of the flowers, although Pearl did come away with a tin of biscuits from a different raffle.
The photos below do not really do justice to the flowers – but will just give you a small taste of what we saw – and maybe encourage more members to come along next year? It really was a good day out.
