Garden Club News

The talk this month was 'A Hedgerow Christmas' by Mrs. G. Burrell.  This was an interesting insight into what you can do with almost any twigs (reasonable length ones) of all descriptions collected from your local hedges.  Mrs. Burrell demonstrated how to make a door wreath, which she then decorated with glycerined leaves, sprayed acorns and ribbon.  The willow she used will gradually change colour as it ages.  She also made a smaller table decoration out of lighter twigs.  Both were very pleasing.  These were then raffled, the lucky winners being Doreen Neal and Dot Richards.

Myrtle Knight was presented with her prize for winning the best pot competition.

The Christmas meal, with skittles after, has been postponed until January.  It will now be at the Lygon Arms in Chipping Camden.  The committee apologises for this, but the New Inn at Clifford Chambers, where we have been for the last two years, no longer does skittles.

"What shall we do at our December meeting?"  That is now the big question.  It will be discussed at the next committee meeting, so watch this space!

The flower of the month competition was well supported and was won by Heather Brennan with a lovely passion flower.

Our next meeting is on 18th November at 7.30.  Mr. P. Aubrey will be talking to us about House and Conservatory Plants.
