Patricia Henry from Chafford Hundred WI writes about a recent flower arrangement demonstration.

At our June meeting I was pleased to welcome our members, including one new member and three new visitors.

Returning for a second visit, Cherry Davison joined us to give a demonstration of her outstanding floral art skills.

Cherry created two very beautiful arrangements while talking us through some very important pointers on how to prepare our flowers and foliage and various equipment necessary for flower arranging.

Cherry very kindly donated both arrangements as raffle prizes and as an added bonus, she enjoyed our meeting so much she has decided to join us as a member!

Yet again June has been another busy month on the social side. Two of our members attended an enjoyable lunch provided by Fobbing & Corringham WI to celebrate their birthday.

A group of our ladies attended the live production of La Boheme screened from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden to the Vue Lakeside and our lunch club tucked into a heart lunch at the Treacle Mine.

The highlight of June has to be the WI Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace in celebration of the WI’s 100th year.

Despite it being very windy and probably the coldest day in June, Suzan Day and Kim Thornton donned their finery along with ladies from some of our other local WI’s, travelled by limo up to London and had a very enjoyable afternoon.

The Duchess of Cornwell was in attendance and one lady from Orsett WI was lucky enough to have a brief conversation with her.

Thought about joining the WI? Well why not come along to one of our meetings held every second Thursday evening of the month at 7pm in the Beacon, All Saints Church, Drake Road or call me for a chat on 01375 480532.
