Crown Hotel, Wetheral, CARLISLE, CA4 8ES
Stanwix flower club was founded in 1961 by keen gardeners Margaret Lockheart, Helen Atkinson, Mick Schooling, Eileen Lowe and Maureen Bentley. The club originally met on an afternoon in the suburb of Carlisle called Stanwix. The club now meets at the very comfortable Crown Hotel in Wetheral a village near Carlisle, just east of M6. We usually meet on the third Monday at 7.30pm (no meeting in August). Annual membership is £45 visitor are welcome £5. We are an active club, some of us participate in festivals and shows but do not be put off if your preference is to watch. There is varied programme which begins in February and includes demonstrations some by national demonstrators, workshops, outings to shows, festivals and gardens. If you share the love of flowers arranging or growing them do come along, we enjoy sharing tips and ideas there is always a friendly welcome.
