About us: 

 

Carlisle & District Floral Art Club was formed in November 1959 by a group of ladies who enjoyed flowers. Our objective today in our 59th year is to encourage the art and enjoyment of flower arranging. We have taken part in several festivals and competitions over the years, representing North West Area at a Harrogate Spring Show & at a Westminster Abbey Festival. As a club members have competed at Chelsea on eleven occasions and have been awarded eight medals. In the Winter of 2011 we changed our meeting time to an afternoon and find that even in the summer months, members are happy to spend a relaxing afternoon enjoying the art of flower arranging. In the winter when the weather is inclement members and demonstrators alike find it more helpful to be able to get home before it gets dark.Our special May meeting is an evening event starting at 7.15 pm. We meet on the first Thursday of the month on ten months of the year, we do not meet in January and August is always a Garden visit either local or further afield, a recent visit was to Dumfries House. On the other Thursdays of the month a very popular Flower and Friendship class takes place tutored by club members. Our meetings start at 1.30 pm and usually last for two hours one and a half of which is spent watching a guest demonstrator. Our meetings take place in the large hall at Morton Manor, Wigton Road, Carlisle where there are ample car parking spaces. Our annual subscription is £40.00 due December/February, this subscription includes membership of Morton Manor Community Centre. non members wishing to join during the year will be offered a reduced subscription. visitors are charged £5.00 per meeting with the May meeting £6.00.
