We held a fundraiser Floral Extravaganza event at the St Elizabeths Church and hall in Westville, showcasing floral art at its best, with 17 designs through the Church as well as 53 in the Hall and filling the stage.  Although it was not a competition, our members participated in 8 classes of designs ranging from petite to large floor freestanding designs, traditional, modern, contemporary and hanging designs, as well as creating a garden on the stage and filling the church with beautiful masses and other designs.  Visitors were then asked to vote, and these are to be tallied and prizes will awarded to the 3 designers receiving the most votes at our next meeting at the end of June.
 
 
One of our objectives in doing this was to encourage our new members to try their hand at a ‘competition’ title without being judged and hopefully by doing this gaining more confidence to enter our monthly club competitions.  We also wanted our members to feel free to try out new ideas and to showcase our work to the public, and we did achieve all of this! Judging by the length of time it took for people to leave, it was obvious that the public were intrigued by the vast array of work on display, so much so that many found it very difficult to vote for just one design!  
 
 
The atmosphere in the hall during the set up and exhibition days was one of fun and friendship.  The church members also helped to create a relaxed and social feel with their delightful tea garden and scrumptious eats!
 
 
We are very proud of our members who gave of their best and thank the public who supported us so generously! 
 
The raffle was won by Geraldine Cominos.
