We are a small, friendly club which was started in 1984. We meet in St Andrew’s Church Hall, Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, at 7.30pm on the third Monday of every month, except August and December. At our meetings we have a guest Area Demonstrator, who will arrange 5 or 6 designs, and you can sit back and relax.
Our Christmas Open Meeting is to be held at the Princess Theatre on November 28th. Carola Kean will be demonstrating “CHILLED AMBIENCE’, tickets available from the Box Office or telephone 01278 784464 at £12.50 each, including wine/juice and mince pies.
We also have a club night where members provide entertainment and get the chance to show off their own skills. This year our Club Night was in March and our members made Easter Baskets.
2 members also did a small Demonstration showing ideas for Easter Rings
In July and November we have Open Meetings when we invite National Demonstrators to come along. We run classes and workshops with qualified and experienced tutors for beginners and more advanced members. Social events are organised during the year, and we raise money for charity.
The club is affiliated to the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS), which has charitable status. NAFAS is divided into Areas and we belong to the South West Area, which has some 2,000 members. The South West Area organises education days on various aspects of flower arranging, and members can go along and participate in these events.
Belonging to NAFAS is an enjoyable experience and will open up a whole new world for you, so why not come along as a guest and find out more? We would be very pleased to see you! Visit our What’s On page to find out what’s happening in the coming months.
