Headcorn Flower Arrangers are a friendly active club based in the Community Centre in Headcorn Village.
The club was founded in 1975 and we celebrated our Ruby anniversary in 2015. We have monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of the month at the Longmeadow Hall in the Community Centre, starting at 7.30pm. We do not meet in January and our August meeting takes the form of a visit to a local formal garden such as Sissinghurst.
Visitors are always welcome at all meetings and we welcome those with no previous experience.
Meetings take the form of demonstrations by NAFAS demonstrators, workshops led by an expert flower arranger or in house workshops. The meetings are always great fun. The demonstrations give us lots of ideas and the workshops give us a chance to roll our sleeves up and “have a go”. Tea, coffee and biscuits are included on our meeting fees.
Workshop meetings are £5 for members and £8 for visitors, demonstrations are £5 for members and £8 for visitors. If visitors would like to join the club they are very welcome and the normal membership subscription is £21 a year, the concession rate is £18 per year.
We also attend NAFAS events during the year, Members’ Day being the highlight of the NAFAS club calendar. Members of the club also enter local Flower Arranging competitions and we will be represented at the Kent Show again this year.
Do come and see what we do – we are all very enthusiastic about flowers and would love to meet you!
