BLOOMING with success, this flower club is celebrating its 45th birthday.

Herrington Flower Club commemorated its sapphire anniversary with an evening of food, fund-raising and, of course, flowers.

Pauline Wiper is chairman of the club and said the anniversary was a wonderful social event for the members.

Pauline, from Grangetown, added: “I’ve been a member about 15 years. We’ve had some fantastic nights and we have great support from our members.”

The group meets twice a month to watch demonstrations from professional flower arrangers and pick up any tips.

Pauline added: “It’s nice to reach this milestone and we are looking forward to the golden anniversary in five years’ time. You have to try and do something to commemorate each event I think.”

TV agony aunt, Denise Robertson, also came down to join in the celebrations.
