As a member of our club you gain access to our full programme of Flower Arranging events which run from 1st September to the 31st August annually and provides 12 months of activity for members to enjoy. Take a look at our ‘Whats on Page’ for this years programme. The programme is designed and created each year by the Club’s Administration Team, who regularly gather feedback from members on ideas to continually develop the content, and look to provide a blend of:
Where members can enjoy watching skilled and qualified NAFAS demonstrators and/or Florists & Floral Tutors creating floral displays, sharing knowledge & the latest tips and techniques whilst also entertaining with colourful stories and personal experiences. All the flower arrangements created on the day are then available as raffle prizes for members to win and take away and enjoy in their own home.
Our skilled and qualified Administration team members, alongside external Specialist Tutors, organise and run workshops where members can create their own flower arrangements and bespoke pieces. Step by step demonstrations and/or instructions, help and support are provided on the day. Our friendly team are also on hand to lead the workshops and provide help and guidance throughout. Using knowledge gained from our many NAFAS demonstrations these workshops allow members to put into practice all they have learnt & to create a floral arrangement for themselves to take home and enjoy.
Presentation & Talks
Members have the opportunity to come along and listen to specialist guest speakers providing entertainment and knowledge from both the flower world and beyond.
Club Outings/Social Events
We try to organise a range of social activities to meet members’ needs. These may include a trip to a House & gardens, an annual RHS Flower show e.g. Harrogate, Tatton or an organised lunch complete with fun and entertainment.
By enrolling with us you not only get access to the full club membership but you also become an affiliated member of NAFAS, with access to its full range of education, materials and services. (See our links page for more information)
The Annual club membership subscriptions are due for payment in September each year for the full years programme, however we welcome and encourage new members, whether a beginner or experienced flower arranger, to join us throughout the year. Why not come along as a visitor first if you are not sure? Subscriptions are calculated on a pro rata basis, dependent on how many months of the annual programme the new member will enjoy.
The annual subscription for the 2023/2024 year is £65
We warmly encourage and welcome visitors to join us, to see what we do, pick up some flower arranging tips and maybe consider joining us as a member in the future.
We usually charge a small fee of £8 per visit (excluding the Christmas demonstration held in November) for a maximum of 2 visits per year, which we hope gives anyone considering a membership the opportunity to experience the club demonstrations and/or workshops first hand and see what a friendly, creative club we are, offering great value for money.
No matter what your level of ability/experience is, the club has something to offer all. If you would like more information please get in touch using the contact form below.
