In September we welcomed new members, visitors and friends, and our speaker for the evening, Chris Biddolph.
Chris, a WI member from Carlton-in-Lindrick, came to demonstrate and talk about “Flower arranging with a Difference”. Five years ago Chris, looking to take her working life in a different direction, left her career in the world of banking to become a florist. When a florist’s shop in Sheffield became available, she took the plunge and began supplying flowers and floral arrangements for weddings, parties, funerals and corporate clients. Her first day of opening was 16 December, the busiest time of year, which set her on track to build a flourishing business.
Whilst creating a striking and colourful arrangement, Chris gave tips on which foliage and flowers are the most long-lasting given appropriate care; how to balance the arrangement; the use of florist wire to manipulate and support stems; and using leaf shine spray to enhance foliage. Lastly, Chris stressed the importance of using good scissors – definitely not the ones you use to remove the bacon rind!
Chris also showed us how to make a bow using florist ribbon which looked straightforward, but when it was our turn to have a go, it proved to be anything but simple. However, there was a lucky winner who was presented with a pot of miniature roses.
Elizabeth Wakefield thanked Chris for sharing her expertise and giving the members an informative and entertaining evening.
 
Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday 10 October at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. Our speaker, Sophie Clapp, will talk about “The History of Boots the Chemist”.
Visitors are always welcome.
