About us: 

 

  If you are in the East Lancashire Area and love flowers why not come along to Pendle Flower Club. We meet at the ACE Centre, Cross Street, Nelson BB9 7NN on the 3rd Wednesday evening of the month (unless      stated).

  Pendle Flower Club was founded in 1980 and has always been well attended and supported by those who have a passion for floral design.

  Our Programme of Demonstrations covers all tastes from the Contemporary to the Traditional. We book Area, National and International Demonstrators and Designers to show their craft on the fabulous ACE Centre      Stage, ideally designed for displaying floral designs at their colourful best.

 Workshops (held at other smaller venues) and Coach Trips to Area Events, Gardens and Exhibitions organised by the Committee are very popular. These are advertised in the local press and within the Club newsletters  - for information on those to be held this year please refer to the Contact details below.

 Members are keen to promote the Club when entering Area and National Competitions and Shows and have been very successful in gaining many awards over the years. The Club has four members on the NAFAS   North-west Area Management Team.

 Craig Bullock - National, International Floral Designer. Judge and Teacher and North-west Area Chairman October 2017-20 is a member of the Club, his enthusiasm and generosity in passing on his knowledge at  Workshops and Demonstrations is an inspiration to Club Members.

 Pendle is a Flower Club that suits those who may wish to sit back and enjoy an entertaining evening watching a Floral demonstration or for those who want to take a more active part in their hobby. Come and visit us, a  very warm welcome awaits.

 Members Fee for 2017 is £33 unless stated. Non-members fee £6 unless stated.
