About us: 

History of Southport and District Flower Club (formerly the The West Lancashire Flower Club).

The Club began with a meeting in 1953 when Mrs Dorothy Tuffin was invited to demonstrate some Christmas Arrangements, as soon as the meeting was over names of those wishing to join were taken, numbers quickly reached 100. The first official meeting as a Club though was in January 1954, the membership increased over the years until it reached 250 and at that point it was decided that this should be the full membership and a waiting list was started. There is a full history of the beginnings of the club featuring familiar names from the past founders of flower clubs in the UK.

Currently the club has a membership of 234 members. We meet at St James' Memorial Hall, Lulworth Road, Birkdale, Southport at 2 p.m. every third Wednesday of the month. No meetings are held in either August or December. We have a thriving Sales Table at each monthly meeting. Guests are very welcome, please note that you can attend three meetings and are then asked to join as a full member. No guests are permitted at the November meetings due to lack of space in our Hall. MEMBERSHIP AVAILABILITY. We are always delighted to accept new members and the ideas they bring with them. Why not come along as a guest to one of our meetings before joining? You can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome, excellent floral demonstrations, plenty of additional events and outings throughout the year. We also run days classes for members who want to expand their flower arranging skills. Contact details are below, we would love to hear from you!
