Valley Friends notes December & January

From Joan Steel

Londa Gray from The Daisy Chain in Princes Risborough gave us a very interesting demonstration with careful instructions on how to make a beautiful flower arrangement for a Christmas table. We each brought a candle and Londa gave us three bunches of flowers plus some berries, greenery, oasis, and a little dish. We followed Londa’s instructions and after an enjoyable half hour or so we were delighted with the results, as we each had a pretty ball-shaped arrangement of red, yellow and pink flowers with a central candle to take home. Amazibngly mine and others lasted until New Year looking fresh and colourful. Londa, and her daughter who helped, were thanked for all their work on preparation and clearing up and for the pleasure we had on the evening.

On 9th January, our thanks to Norma who arranged a games evening and we played Beetle which caused lots of fun.

Our next meeting, on February 6th, is a talk by Neil Rees entitled ‘The Court of King Zog’ (in exile in Frieth 1941-46). All welcome.
