Fenella’s sessions are blooming success

FLORAL DELIGHT: Fenella Conway, centre, shows Irene Collins, left, and Carole Kleiman how to arrange flowers

Fenella Conway has been a Leeds community volunteer for more than 60 years.

It was when proceeds from the former annual Queenshill bazaar began to slide that she suggested to Leeds Jewish Welfare Board they open a charity shop, which resulted in her setting up a committee which led to the launch of thewellfairshop in Moortown.

Fenella loves to be kept busy, especially when it involves anything artistic. She runs flower arranging sessions at the community centre on the second Thursday of every month (2-3.30pm).

“Although I am now retired from running my own florist shop, The Cactus Flower, in Meanwood, I still rise early every morning, trying to fill my day,” she said.

Her sessions cost £5, but all materials are included. Future dates are February 8, March 8 and April 12 with booking essential.
