After their hectic June activities, members of Binbrook & District WI were ready for a nice relaxing evening and that was what they had, when Caroline Jackson showed them how to make a stunning floral display with just a few sprigs of foliage and flowers.
And while her hands did the work, Caroline told how an interest in gardening changed her life, going from flower arranging classes at Grimsby College to becoming the Midlands NAFAS representative.
This means she now travels all over the UK and is hoping she will be asked to attend a worldwide event happening soon in Barbados.
Caroline also gave glowing praise of the WI’s competition for a mini floral display in an eggcup, which had attracted a record 12 entries to brighten the hall.
In Caroline’s opinion everyone was a winner, which made it difficult to judge, and it came down to the number of ‘difficult to pose’ flowers used in each display.
And the winner was Barbara White, with Hilary Harris second and Ann Kent third.
The raffle proved very popular, as it featured Caroline’s arrangements and president Marina Cawley was the first ticket winner.
