Especially For You was the title of the demonstration given at the latest meeting of Spilsby Flower Club, held recently at St James Church.

It was presented by Joan Woodhead-Brigsley and included six varied arrangements in different containers.

Joan is pictured with one of the arrangements, which made for two raffle prizes. Placed on a long container, it comprised greenery (phoenix palms, aspidistra leaves, griselinia, and contorted hazel), flowers (antirrhinum (sunset), alstroemeria, deep red roses (Naomi), and cream carnations), and, at the back, a stand to hold a painting with different colours and shapes of craft paper added to it.

The next meeting will be held in St James Church, Spilsby, on Tuesday, May 28, at 7pm. This will be the AGM.

After the meeting, members will be given a talk and demonstration on glass mosaics.
