The Colchester Group of Flower Clubs (East of England Area of NAFAS) were delighted to be invited to take part in the RHS Hyde Hall Spring Flower Show on Saturday and Sunday 9th/10thFebruary 2019. This was a new event as normally there is only a summer show.
Mrs Diane Leggett, Colchester Group, had contacted Hyde Hall initially to ask if the Colchester Group could be involved with the summer show and the immediate response was that they would like her to do some arrangements for the Spring Show and were very happy for NAFAS to be promoted. They kindly offered to meet the costs of the flowers.
Diane then invited all of the Colchester Group Clubs to send her any posters they wanted included on the information board and a variety of choices and information was assembled for visitors to view. Diane reports that they had a great deal of interest and so we are hopeful that our clubs will benefit from this exposure.
Diane and Celia Knight (both members of Blackwater Flower Club) staged the designs and manned the stand over the two days. Hyde Hall then asked if they would be willing to run a small workshop for visitors in their Craft Centre and they also took up this challenge for two hours on the Sunday morning.
Our Area Chairman, Lesley Fairman, who is also President of the Colchester Flower Group visited the show on the Saturday and helped on the publicity stand.
