It was our Flower Show Meeting last night.
The meeting was just a short one really as the schedule for the day and all other necessary "to dos" have already been finalised and sorted but it is always rather fun to meet up around auntie Glad's kitchen table with tea, scones and chew the fat so to speak.
This year's Flower Show will be the village's 40th.
The proceeds of last year's show will go towards re stocking the Churchyard with native saplings (I have yet to sort this out) and last night we have agreed to help out the newly formed Village Jubilee committee this year with a donation to support their plans for a village gala in June.
It was lovely to be in a position to boost a new Trelawnyd venture, especially one that celebrates the ideas of people that are not the " usual suspects" in village affairs. I have promised to big up the new committee's itinerary as soon as it is made "Public"
After Auntie Glad dished out the tea and scones, Irene our Treasurer told us all about her up and coming cruise holiday then showed us the newly printed certificate for first and second place entries as well as the 600 odd raffle tickets we all need to sell before and on the day itself.
92 year old Gladys asked for her portion of tickets there and then explaining that she wanted to get organised with her sales!"
"How many books do you want?" Sylvia the show Secretary asked
"Oh my usual 200!" Gladys said cheerfully, scooping them all up in her armsAnd you know what? she'll sell every bloody one of them!
