The Flower Arranging group meet every 2nd Wednesday of the month at The Swan, Rayne. (Either in the back room or – weather permitting – outside).

Update April 2020 Look at the wild flower arrangement at the top of the right-hand column. Pauline put this together from what she found on her walk. We can all enjoy flower arranging even with the current restrictions.

Information from Pauline...........

We bring along our own flowers and accessories – we each make as much or as little effort as we wish. Personally I usually arrive armed with too many flowers, (and Rebecca Fuller with enough ‘greenery’ for the whole group) and am overloaded with bits and pieces that I think will enhance my creation. In reality, it usually ends up a bit of a mess. But I enjoy the planning, and attempts of making mine look as good as everybody elses. It has to be said I usually fail at this, but it really doesn’t matter – there is no competition and no prizes. It’s mostly a case of spending a happy morning with others and hopefully learning some of the art of flower arranging along the way.The biggest problem is transporting our masterpieces home and them arriving in one piece!
