DRIFFIELD AND DISTRICT FLOWER CLUB celebrates its 50th Anniversary in 2022.
An Appreciation - by Margaret Jenkins
Rosalind was a valued member of Driffield Flower Club for 39 years.
I completed my City & Guilds Flower Arranging in the late 1970s, I was asked to do the Club's entry at the Harrogate Spring Show when it was held in the Valley Gardens. I asked Rosalind if she would like to be my Gopher! Soon after that she was persuaded to take the Area Demonstrators' Test.
Thousands of flower club members from all over the country enjoyed her Demonstrations with her anecdotes about her life as a farmers wife and her Family. She always used the most beautiful flowers.
For many years Rosalind and myself did Food and Flowers demonstrations and helped to raise many thousands of pounds for various charities. We always enjoyed our times together, me with my daft sense of humour and Rosalind trying to keep a straight face!
She was a kind and generous friend to me and many others. She always encouraged the members of Driffield Flower Club to help with the numerous Flower Festivals we did over the years.
We are very proud to have had her as an Honorary Member of Driffield Flower Club.
