As the weather warms it’s beginning to feel like spring is upon us and that’s a very exciting time for those with green fingers. It is especially true for the Halesowen Flower Club, a group of local people which meets monthly to appreciate the fine art of flower arranging.
Every second Thursday of the month, the club meets at the Halesowen Library for a flower arranging demonstration. Each session allows the group to watch arrangements been made by national experts such as Elizabeth Graham (National Demonstrator for Wales), Nigel Whyles (National Demonstrator from Telford) and Yolanda Campbell (NAFAS qualified Demonstrator). Every meeting also features a raffle with the prize being the beautiful floral designs made by the demonstrators.
The dates and themes for the 2016 demonstrations are as follows and the club would like to welcome new members:
Elizabeth Graham (Newport) – ‘Colours of Spring’
Lorena Dyer (Coventry) – ‘A Moment in Time’
Rosebowl Competition – ‘Dreaming of Distant Shores’
