Eddisbury Flower Club

Back

Although we are called Eddisbury Flower Club, we are based in Sandiway, Northwich, in Cheshire and have been established for some 58 years!

We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, excluding January and August. In October we hold our AGM and that is usually followed by a Speaker and tea and cake!

These meetings take place at St John’s Church Hall, Norley Road, Sandiway, CW8 2JX at 2pm. The doors open at 1.20pm to allow members to have a chat, look at and hopefully purchase items from our Sales table and also to have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets (the demonstrator’s arrangements are the prizes.) Afterwards there is a cup of tea, a chance to look more closely at the demonstrator’s work as well as meeting other club members.

The subscriptions are £29 for the year plus £2.50 per meeting. Visitors are always welcome and pay £5, which includes refreshments after the demonstration.

During the year we have 2 club competitions, a summer themed one and a Christmas one. We hope in the near future to introduce a beginners’ competition to encourage the less confident arrangers amongst us to have a go ....... after all it is meant to be fun, not a daunting prospect!

We endeavour to have 1 or 2 club trips during the year to gardens or flower festivals. We have in the past been to see Chatsworth and Shugborough to see the homes decked out for Christmas and this year the day out will be at Attingham Park where a 1940s Christmas theme is scheduled. We also have our own plant sale at the May meeting and on occasion a fund raising or social event.
