Parbold & District Flower Club

Meeting Address: 

Parbold Village hall, The Green, Parbold, Lancashire, WN8 7ND

About us: 

Meetings take place on the second Wednesday afternoon of the month throughout the year* at the Parbold Village Hall, The Green, Parbold WN8 7ND. Join us at 1pm - 1.30pm for refreshments prior to the Demonstration at 1.45pm. (* With the exception of January, August & December). Guests are very welcome throughout the year for £6 and can join the club at any time (fees £34 per annum). If you would like to know more, please call Eileen Martin 01704 893124 We are lucky that in Parbold & District we have a thriving and busy afternoon Flower Club whose aim is to inspire and encourage members and guests to enjoy flower arranging and learn how to use flowers creatively by watching experienced demonstrators. In the 48 years since the Club’s beginnings on 18th March 1970, we have seen floral design leave behind the once popular traditional triangle-type arrangements and move on to more contemporary and imaginative designs. To help us we always book demonstrators who have a wide range of design skills so there’s something for everyone. At our monthly meetings, a NAFAS demonstrator or professional florist will create between 5 and 6 arrangements, which are then raffled off at the end of the afternoon. By watching experienced and entertaining demonstrators we hope that this will encourage our members to have a go at home, perhaps take in some classes, or just sit back and enjoy the demonstrations. Every November we have a special Christmas themed Festive Flowers. In addition to our club demonstrations, we hold a series of workshops, an annual Strawberry Tea and day trips. Our members range from beginners to others with a huge wealth of experience. Come along and enjoy the beauty of the flowers and join in the fun making new friends. If you would like to know more, please call Eileen Martin 01704 893124
