THE July meeting was held at Greys village hall on a beautiful sunny day and the president Val Mundy welcomed everyone.
The guest speaker was Christine Brewster who had arrived with a car boot full of lovely colourful baskets and pot-holders made from recyclable materials, such as plastic bands, glossy magazines and plastic wire.
The patterns she had made were incredible and she was warmly thanked by Janet Leaver. It was suggested that an outing to Englefield House, near Theale, where Christine is situated, would be interesting.
The competition for the best bloom was won by Val Mundy with a tall acanthus with Suzanne Thetford in second with a lovely rose.
A delicious tea was enjoyed by all and members were reminded that the next meeting will be in the third week of September as there is no meeting in August.
