Floral Art Club gets in the July racing spirit



A TINY stage in the centre of Grafton Shoppingworld has been transformed into a sanctuary of colour thanks to the Grafton Floral Art Society's 'Flowers and Butterfly' display.

It's the seventh year the society has created a display at the shopping centre to coincide with Grafton's July Racing Carnival.

Yesterday morning members of the society arrived armed with buckets of poinsettias, bird of paradise, carnations and other delights to brighten up the centre.

Several hours of hard work later, 20 floral arrangements were spread out over the stage, complete with decorative butterflies made by member Kay Monro.

The handiwork of the floral art society will be on display at Shoppingworld until the end of the week.

A raffle for a basket of groceries to help fund the cost of the flowers on display will also be held.

Anyone interested in attending the society's fortnightly meetings can find them at the Uniting Church Hall from 9am on the second and fourth Thursday of every month.
