The club tour of Sussex gardens, based in Eastbourne, scheduled for last July (2020) was cancelled and rebooked to begin Sunday 13th June 2021.
Statement from our Chairman
Following NAFAS guidance, I consider that no committee member nor member of Worcester Floral Arrangement Society should ever be made to feel uncomfortable by expectations to attend meetings during the current coronavirus pandemic.
Therefore, I have taken an unprecedented decision to cancel the Open Meeting in November 2020. The venue and demonstrator have been cancelled.
Our club meetings that are held each month at the Memorial Hall in Hallow have also been cancelled for the remainder of the year.
I believe this will offer a source of relief as personnel safety is of paramount importance to all.
Regards Pamela Davies

"Creativity, Fun and Friendship through Flowers and Flower Arranging."
We are a large and friendly club who have recently celebrated our 60th anniversary.
We meet on the first Friday of each month at Hallow village hall. Visitors are always welcome for a charge of only £5. Starting at 7.30pm, we watch some of the best Area and National demonstrators create stunning, diverse designs for our entertainment, which several of us will win in a raffle.
Some of the many big shows we compete at include the Three Counties, The Malvern Spring and Autumn Shows and NAFAS National and Area Days. Our talented members win numerous awards including many first prizes!
We have also taken part in decorating everything from St. Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Abbey in London, to local cathedrals, abbeys and churches. We have provided arrangements at the Guildhall in Worcester for the Mayor’s banquets and charity dinners over the years. Members of the public may well have been impressed by the standard of the glorious arrangements we created, maybe some of them found ‘Lonely Bouquets’, left in various places to be taken home, which help to promote Flower Clubs everywhere.
Each year we hold an Open Meeting, when a Christmas demonstration raises money for our chosen charity of the year.
We travel far and wide on holidays incorporating visits to gardens including Versailles, Monet's Garden in Givenchy, Gerona, Barcelona, Helsinki and St Petersburg.
We are rightly proud of our Junior Club for all aged 8-17.
