The Floral Arts Society recently held their AGM and elected the following committee; President Ann Crasti, Vice President Barbara Magill, Secretary Marie Rushby and Assistant Secretary Joy Neems, Treasurer Jan Ranger Publicity Officer and Colleen Cusack. The new committee are now hard at work planning their 36th Annual Floral Fair and this year they want to try something different. “We’re inviting everyone to come and enjoy the fun with Ready Steady Flowers” said Colleen Cusack. Inspired by the TV series, Ready Steady Cook, two floral
designers and two volunteers from the audience will vie for first position in completing a floral design against the clock.
There will be workshops throughout Saturday 30th April and Sunday 1st May for all interested to learn how to create floral jewellery. Know someone getting married soon? Why not bring them along so they can learn how to create their own floral designs, bouquets and fascinators and add a personal touch to a special day. Workshops will be held every half hour from 1pm on Saturday and 10am on Sunday at the Parkes Leagues Club. The guest judge
for this year is Parkes’ own, Mrs Elsie Mahon and the committee are certain she will fulfil the role well and are excited for her comments. There will also be a cut flower section for home gardeners this year.
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a green thumb and would like some more information, please contact President Ann Crasti on 0442 190 135 and come and enjoy a bloomin’ lovely weekend.
