St. Joseph's RC High School, Chorley New Rd., Horwich, Bolton BL6 6HW

About us: 

Horwich Floral Art Club was founded in 1965 and is one of the largest clubs in the North West Area. We are a thriving club with over 100 members, and we boast amongst our membership several demonstrators and award-winning designers, who play an active part in competitions and festivals across the region and beyond. Meetings are held at 7.30pm in the main hall at St Joseph's Catholic High School, Chorley New Road, Horwich BL6 6HW, on the first Wednesday of the month (except January, when the meeting takes place on the second Wednesday, and August, when there is no meeting). Members and visitors alike can expect to see demonstrations by both National and Area demonstrators, who entertain and inspire, as well as bringing beautiful flowers, which are raffled off at the end of the night. Guests are always welcome, at a cost of £5.00 per meeting. There is also a charity raffle at every meeting, and 'make a pound grow" - a chance to win half of the money taken on the "make a pound grow" section that night. There are workshops to improve skills or learn new ones, as well as regular trips to seasonal events, stately homes, flower shows and festivals. Members also have the chance to take part in festivals, and shows, either individually or as part of a club team. At every meeting there is a flower arrangement to be admired, that has been inspired by the Flower Arranger Magazine. Members can subscribe to the Flower Arranger at a reduced rate, and can also purchase Christmas cards, diaries and calendars. Trash and treasure and plant sales tables at selected meetings. Membership costs £32 per year - great value for money, and an opportunity to make new friends, gain inspiration and enjoy fantastic demonstrations
