Emerald Anniversary Afternoon Tea

2013 marked a very special year for our Club.  In 1958 Aberdeen & County Floral Group was formed and now, 55 years later we celebrated our Emerald Anniversary with an Afternoon Tea at Aberdeen’s Beach Ballroom, a fabulous and fitting venue for such an occasion.  To add to the glamour of this event, Sandy Bailey, a NAFAS National Demonstrator, travelled from Basingstoke to WOW over 260 guests with her presentation ‘A Gem from Nature’.
