Congratulations to Diana Phillips and Joy Hutchings who won second prize on behalf of the club in the club class entitled “Gardeners World”  at the 2017 Taunton Flower Show. Their design was made almost entirely using garden plant material, and featured a garden trellis with ‘climbing roses’, and a  column of sunflowers. Lovely arrangements of garden flowers in  ‘hot’ colours, and a selection of home grown vegetables completed the design.


Other club award winners included Glenda Martin, with a  first and a second prize for her lovely wreath pictured below.

Sally Fallows took third with her interpretation of the class titled ‘River of Dreams’. Here is her design.
