New Year greetings to all from Stewartry Flower Club. The Club has a planned programme of activities, although the meetings will, inevitably, be dependent on Covid rules. Unfortunately Gatehouse has had a high rate of Covid over Christmas and New Year and so the Club’s January lunch is being postponed until February.

On the 18th January the Scottish Government decided to remove the majority of Covid restrictions. I will inform members shortly how this affects us.

I’m delighted to tell you that Tina has managed to book Mima Telfer to do a demonstration for our meeting on 10th March. Mima is from Dumfries and, having seen her ‘sweep the board’ of prizes at the Ayr Flower Show, we can be sure that you will be in for a real treat.

For our meeting on 14th April, we’re planning to have a video and practical class on ikebana – an arrangement that makes the most of a few winter twigs and spring flowers. In May, we are planning to go on a garden visit and in June we hope to have another demonstration.

Two other events for later in the year that you may be interested in:-

12 June—SAFAS 65th Anniversary Lunch at Hearts of Midlothian Conference Centre, Edinburgh. Demonstration by Alan Beatty. Tickets £40 from Judy Wightman email:

22/26 Sept – Dumfries & District Flower Club Flower Festival to celebrate its Diamond Anniversary in the Crichton Church, Dumfries. We shall be making enquiries about organising a coach trip to this event.
