Happy Birthday and Congratulations to Margaret Ellwood, a past SAFAS Treasurer who celebrated her 100th birthday on 7th November.

See ‘Send a Spring of Rosemary’ on the Church of Scotland website under Events.

May I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and hope for a healthy and peaceful New Year.

We have so much to look forward to next year and dates will be sent soon. There is no doubt that when we return to Floral Art it will be with a new enthusiasm as we now realise how much we valued and missed our friendship through flowers

Please convey this information to your members.

Best wishes to everyone

Margaret Strachan

SAFAS Chairman
