Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady Flower Arranging Demonstration 9 September 2020

El Cid was the venue for a fabulous flower arranging demonstration with afternoon tea included. The demonstration given by Christine Brazier was on the theme of Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady, which brought back memories for a few of us who have a copy of Edith Holden’s book of the same name on our bookshelves.

With a flower quiz thrown in and the beautiful arrangements becoming prizes in the raffle afterwards, it was a very pleasant afternoon which raised a magnificent total of 879€ for Jalon Valley Help.

OK Band at the Bull Ring - 25 July 2020

This was the first event JVH had organised following lockdown and what a night it was!
A great deal of attention was paid to safety, from well spaced tables, to hand sanitising on entry and ensuring that everyone wore masks except when sitting at their table for a picnic. Even the ban on dancing did not stop everyone enjoying themselves and as usual the OK Band were on top form. Feedback after the event was excellent.
And to top it all the event raised much needed funds of over 2400€
At the end of the evening Elaine Horton thanked not only the OK Band for entertaining us so well, and Octavio and Susana for the use of the Bull Ring, but also everyone who attended and behaved impeccably. It just shows that, even in these strange times, when everyone respects the safety rules it is possible to have a good time – safely.
