More than 90 people attended the City of Ely Flower Club’s annual open meeting last Thursday.

Area demonstrator David Wright wowed the audience with a series of displays entitled It’s an Education.

Mr Wright carried on the theme by giving the audience a short quiz.

A charity raffle was also held and raised £129 for Maggie’s Wallace, which provides free support to people affected by cancer.

Margaret Dooling, from the flower club, said: “The quiz was fun, David was very entertaining and everyone had a thoroughly good time.

“The hall looked stunning with white tablecloths with fine china. There was a real variety of table flower arrangements themed on the school curriculum which were amazing. A big thank you to all the members for providing the buffet, refreshments, table arrangements and also the committee for their hard work.”

The club’s next meeting takes place on Thursday, July 2, in Ely College, at 7.15pm.
