We had a craft based meeting today given by Tina on making an Easter wreath which seemed to go down very well with our members. We had a circular metal frame and we were shown how to attach a ribbon then some moss into which we attached our flowers. It was nice to learn a new craft, very good for a first attempt.
We also held a free raffle with 6 plants as prizes.
