A flower arranging club was proud to receive a trophy at the Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society Summer Show.
Holyport Flower Arranging Club chose the title of A Day at the Races for its piece to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday at the show on Saturday, July 16.
Ann Upton, secretary of the club said: “This is the third time we have been invited to stage an exhibit.
“Whilst the display is not a competition, the Governor of the Castle chooses one element from all the displays to be placed on the Queen’s breakfast table the morning following the show.
“This year Holyport Flower Arranging Club chose the title of A Day at the Races to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday, as the Queen learnt to ride in Holyport and is passionate about her horses and racing.
“The club was chosen as the recipient of the trophy this year and a flower cake that was made by our member, Jean Loveday, was taken for the Queen’s breakfast table.
“As a group we are very proud of our achievements this year and hope to take this forward to other invitations we have received.”
