Elizabeth blossoms at rural

Burnfoot WRI’s December meeting had a real family touch as member Elizabeth Jackson gave a very skilled show of floral art.

She managed to produce six lovely arrangements, beautifully mixing flowers with foliage for better effect. Jean Welsh thanked Elizabeth for the display and also for giving the ladies many tips they might want to try.

The syallabus for 2015-16 was handed out and members heartily approved it. Final arrangements for next week’s Christmas dinner were made and a few business matters ended the meeting.

Competitions: table arrangement – 1, S. Nelson; 2, A. Wilson; 3, F. Spalding. Christmas napkin – 1, A. Wilson; 2, F. Spalding; 3, J. Neish. Sales table – £8. Snowball raffle – J. Welsh.

Next meeting on January 6 in Burnfoot Community Centre at 7.30pm. New members welcome.
