New Year Forum
We had an impromptu discussion on eclectic topics:
Judith spoke about the medicinal properties of sage
Thelma had researched more on the green wood brought in by Jenny and found information on Tom Volk’s blog  http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/  (July 2008)
Janella confessed that she needs to declutter and asked for tips
Trevor ranted about purchasing bulbs and plants only to find out that they flowered a different colour from those advertised and wondered why Trades Description doesn’t apply.

Friday Forum Christmas Party 2017

It was party time at Friday Forum and everyone dressed for the occasion




The party kicked off with a Quiz compiled by James
 Decor by Peter


Followed by festive food and flower arranging workshop

..... and just look at the results!


 Did you spot Ann's bird - and can you identify it?
 Phyllis modelling her wreath - but it didn't fit under her bicycle helmet

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all
