Newport Flower Club celebrates Joint Queen’s Platinum...

Author | 13 June 2022

And 40th Club Foundation Anniversary

Newport Flower Club was hoping to celebrate its 40th Club foundation anniversary in 2020, but the pandemic intervened so the Committee decided to have a combined celebration meeting in June 2022 to recognise both its foundation and the Queen’s Platinum Anniversary. To mark these special occasions they invited demonstrator and teacher Dawn Weaver to the meeting who, amongst her many other awards, has won 5 gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show for her floral designs. The title of her demonstration was “Artistic Licence” and she produced beautiful colourful designs which many members were happy to take home as raffle prizes. Following the demonstration the members joined in with a hearty rendition of the National Anthem (accompanied by Kath Turner on her street organ) and enjoyed celebration refreshments.
