About us: 

 

Established in September 1966, Penrith & District Flower Club is a friendly, active group with about 100 members.

We meet in the Evergreen Hall, Penrith at 7.30pm on the 3rd Wednesday in the month and through the year we offer an interesting and varied programme of activities.  The majority of our evening meetings comprise of an opportunity to watch NAFAS demonstrators from the NW area create beautiful arrangements; we also have a sales table, refreshments and a raffle (your chance to win one of the beautiful arrangements). Not only do we learn a great deal about arranging flowers but many demonstrators are dedicated gardeners too, and introduce us to unusual plants along with many useful hints and growing tips. Their accompanying talk is usually interesting, informative and often hilarious.

The Club also holds an annual 'Members Night' with competitions and on alternate years we either have an Open Night with a National Demonstrator or a major fund raising event with donations to local charities.  We also have workshops where there is the opportunity to develop your own creative side under guidance. These occasions are guaranteed to be relaxed and great fun, whatever the result!

Throughout the year we also have a number of trips and outings to flower festivals and shows, floral wholesalers, garden centres and venues as far afield as Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey.

The Club is lucky to have some very experienced flower arrangers and we take part in a number of Flower Festivals and other events with several members entering competitions, often with notable success. We also have a large number of have members who simply look forward to meeting up with friends and sharing the joy of flowers.

Penrith & District Flower Club is all about fun, friendship and flowers. Why not come along and try us out - a warm welcome always awaits visitors and new members.

Visitors £4.00

Membership currently £32.00 per year due annually on 1 October.
