Cringleford & Hethersett Flower Club

We are a friendly group affiliated to the National Association of Flower Arranging Societies (NAFAS) who meets on a regular basis to enjoy and learn about flowers and flower arranging.  We also learn a lot about plants and shrubs and their use in arrangements.  Our club was founded 40 years ago in Cringleford and has flourished ever since.  In fact we celebrated our Ruby Anniversary in March this year!  We have exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show, the Malvern Hills Show, the Norfolk Show and have participated in many flower festivals in both local churches and the two Norwich Cathedrals.

We have a membership of about 50 women of all ages (men are most welcome too!).  We generally meet on the fourth Monday of the month (Bank Holidays permitting) at Hethersett Village Hall, Back Lane, Hethersett at 7.30 pm (doors open at 7.00 pm) where we watch a demonstrator.  This may be a speaker, a NAFAS qualified local person or a NAFAS National Demonstrator, and there is an opportunity to win one of their flower arrangements as these are raffled off at the end of the evening.

 Each year we also have a workshop evening or day event, when we learn new skills at all levels and have a go ourselves - these are usually great fun!  We hold our AGM, followed by a lovely buffet supper, in March. Our membership for the full year is £25.00 and we welcome visitors at a cost of £5.00 per meeting. Coffee or tea and biscuits are available after the demonstration.

If you love flowers and flower arranging, why not join us as a visitor one evening?  You will be made very welcome!  For further information please contact our chairman Lynn Rawlings on 01603 457888.
