2011 Fay Gardner Achievement Award
Bestowed December 2011
Iris joined the guild in 1981 and has been an active member ever since having participated on the committee for many of these years as treasurer, assistant treasurer, in the general committee and junior guild, and in co‐opted activities e.g. labelling, stuffing and posting Branch News, and stuffing and labelling Sweet Perfection.
Iris has more recently been instrumental in organising flowers and/or cards for special occasions, sympathies and of course get well wishes.
Iris has also demonstrated at branch meetings. Iris has provided some wonderful demonstrations — especially on piped flowers — and has been a stalwart of the junior guild since its inception.
It is with great pleasure that we announce that Iris has been awarded the 2011 Fay Gardner Achievement Award. Congratulations.
