On the 21 May the Hadleigh Show saw two of our members gaining first prizes with Gilly Thomson being awarded ‘Runner Up to Best in Show’
During the night of 24 May Giovanna Roberts and I competed at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show on behalf of the Club.   We were delighted to be awarded a silver medal for our exhibit ‘Beneath the Waves’
Staging at The Suffolk Show was on a cold bleak morning of the 30th May. Twelve of our members entered a total of twenty two exhibits, gaining eighteen awards. Our Club exhibit, arranged by Linda Harman & Jo Crapnell was awarded second place and Ruth Prior received a trophy for ‘Best Use of Colour’.   Congratulations to everyone whether you won a prize or not.   All of Holbrook Flower Club’s exhibits were stunning.

We are a thriving Club with over one hundred members.   We hold workshops for our members on the first Tuesday of each month and our Club meeting is at 1.30pm on the second Tuesday of the month at Holbrook Village Hall, with the exception of July & August when we have a Club outing and Cream Tea.   Visitors are always welcome.   I look forward to welcoming you.
