Dereham and District Flower Club – based in the heart of the County

We aim to stimulate and encourage interest in the art of flower arranging. Our Club arranges demonstrations, floral design workshops, lessons and outings.

This is a thriving club with over 50 members of all ages. It’s run and organised by volunteers from its membership and has been running for over 45 years.

The club is affiliated to the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS). Our club is part of the Norwich group which in turn is a member of the East of England Area.

Club nights are held throughout the year at Toftwood Village Hall on Shipdham Road, NR19 1JL on the 4th Thursday of each month. Each club night includes a floral demonstration by an area or national NAFAS demonstrator and a flower arranging competition. We have an exciting tradition of raffling off the arrangements made by demonstrators which helps support the funding of the club meetings and the programme of events. There are sales tables of garden and flower arranging books, plants and essential flower arranger’s items such as floral foam, trays and club aprons. Doors open at 6.45pm with the flower demonstrations starting at 7.30pm.

The club organises a full programme of events throughout the year;  garden visits, workshops where you can practice flower arranging techniques, beginners lessons on Saturdays over the Summer and competitions. There is also a special open evening at the Memorial Hall in town in April with shopping stalls, floral demonstrations and a raffle.

Members are kept up-to-date with news and what’s coming up via a monthly newsletter and our Facebook page.  https://www.facebook.com/derehamflowerclub/
