About us: 

Becconsall Flower Club was founded in November 1981 and at present our current membership is around 65 members. Our meetings are held at 7.30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month in the church hall next to All Saints Church, Station Road, Hesketh Bank. Throughout the year we have demonstrations by National and Area Demonstrators followed by refreshments and a raffle of the arrangements. After our Christmas demonstration, members and guests enjoy a delicious Jacob’s Join supper. Also at our December meeting, we donate a cheque to our chosen charity. We have a practice night or fun night during the year, an annual photograph competition and our A.G.M., accompanied by Hot Pot Supper, is in October. We hold a couple of social events during the summer months - a Coffee Evening at the home of one of our Club members. We arrange outings to gardens and flower festivals. We have a Publications Table where NAFAS magazines, cards, calendars etc. can be purchased; a second-hand Book Stall and an occasional Plant Stall. Flower arranging supplies and accessories can be ordered and there is a Sales Table at our Christmas demonstration. In recent years, our club has been involved in many flower festivals in the area including Southport, Scarisbrick Hall, Stoneyhurst, Rufford Old Hall and Houghton Tower. Some of our members have supported many local church flower festivals and we recently hosted a very successful Flower Festival at our local church Becconsall Old Church to help raise funds for its continued restoration. Our Club decorated Croston Parish Church for their recent Tapestry of Life quilting exhibition. We welcome new members and visitors we are always pleased to see new faces! Annual subscription is £32 Visitors £5 except at Christmas when it is £8 to include buffet. Contact number for enquiries - 01772 816841
