We were visited last week by Mary Mottram from St Hugh and St John’s parish and watched with interest as the most beautiful Christmas floral arrangements were constructed. We were shown how to make special bows and how to attach florists wire to fir cones and other artificial flowers. The arrangements were raffled at the end of the afternoon for two lucky winners. Thank you Mary for not only the lovely arrangements but for showing us how we can “cheat” when we have a go for ourselves and also for the tips on how to keep arrangements in oasis alive for several weeks.
Next week we are to have a visit from Marks and Spencer who are going to give us a taste of their Christmas fare come along and enjoy it with us.
