The winners of the flower arranging competition were presented with their trophies, and new members welcomed to the Committee. Phyllis Collett was presented with her 40-year long service award. The meeting ended with tea and home-made cakes, and a quiz to test everyone's knowledge of plants. Pictures below by Lesley Bennion.
