Notes We are a small, friendly Club affiliated to the National Association of Flower Arranging Societies. Our members span a wide age-range and share an enjoyment of flowers even if we are not all accomplished flower arrangers.

Meetings are held at the Day Centre, Commercial Road, Paddock Wood on the fourth Thursday of each month except the last meeting of the year which is a Christmas meeting which is usually held in the Village Hall in Matfield. Meetings at the Day Centre commence at 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm.)

The Club has a varied programme of demonstrations by visiting flower arrangers, talks on topics allied to gardening and flower arranging, workshops and practical sessions. The meetings include a raffle of the flower arrangements if we have had a demonstration and/or other items, a Sales Table selling a variety of flower arranging “bits and pieces” at less that retail price, as well as refreshments of teas or coffee and biscuits for a small charge.
