May 2011 Club Meeting

Minutes of the Meeting of the Guest Evening of the Bradford Flower Club held on Monday 16th May 2011 at Haworth Road Methodist Church:

 A warm welcome was given by the Chairman to The Lady Mayoress Mrs Gillian Hall, Club Members and guests to the May Guest Evening.

 Membership renewals were available from Vivienne Midgley on the evening. Any uncollected forms would be posted out.

 Minutes of the April meeting were on the notice board and would be signed after the meeting.

 Members were encouraged to put their names down for a workshop at Bolton Villas on the 2nd July lead by Eileen Barraclough. The cost would be £12.00. Further details would be available from Eileen at a later date.

 Places were still available on the coach to Poppleton House Garden on the 8th June. This was the home of Kath Dogget who had been one of our guest demonstrators. The cost would be £18.00 to include coach, entry and refreshments.

 Members were thanked for supporting the cake stall. Proceeds were to go to the Lords Mayor’s appeal for Nell Bank.

 Looking back through our club notes at our May meeting last year the Chairman was late due to being delayed by the volcanic ash. Going further back to the 16th May 2005 Sheila Clark was in the Chair, the club meeting was at Haworth Road and the Lord Mayor and Miss Margaret Peet the Area Chairman were our guests.

 Eileen Barraclough had obtained a second and a highly commended at Harrogate Show. (she had done even better this year as we heard last month winning best in show)

 Preview tickets were available for a Flower Festival on the 1st July 2005. They cost £6.50 but unfortunately there were no details of where the festival was being held. Members were asked if they could fill in the gap?

 Also our Club Rules had been revised and updated and members were asked to approve the changes.

 Our demonstrator that evening was John Chennell with his title Seasonal Spender and Margaret gave the vote of thanks.

 A very warm welcome was then given to Mr Arthur MacDonald and his title was ‘Purely for Pleasure’.The Vote of Thanks was given by Mrs Gillian Hill.

A cheque for £100.00 was then presented to Gillian for Nell Bank. The cake stall making around £45.00 towards this amount.

All were then thanked for attending. The next meeting would be on the 20th June  when our speaker would be Anne Drake with her title Faberge Jeweller to the Tsar.

 All were invited to have a cup of tea or coffee before leaving and asked to take care and arrive home safely and once again encouraged to put their names down for the trip and workshop. The meeting closed at 9.
