2022 Royal Cheshire Show
We are delighted to announce that the 2022 Area Show will take place in the Theatre of Flowers at the Royal Cheshire Show. The schedule is almost the same as for the cancelled show in 2020 but an additional virtual class (more details here) has been added to include those who cannot attend in person and the addition of the Flower Arranger Award for the Novice Class.
Full details of the floral design schedule, the class titles and trophies can be accessed from our Royal Cheshire Show 2022 page.

Jean Mangnall
It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Jean Mangnall on February 14th.
Jean was a much loved and admired flower arranger who will be greatly missed by her friends across Cheshire and beyond.
She was a Cheshire Area Associate of Honour In recognition of her steadfast support as area minute secretary, JDS&E secretary, area secretary, and many other jobs in between.
She was always open to learning new ideas, was an avid and successful competitor at all levels, and was an excellent Area demonstrator.
She was supportive to everyone and always willing to help and share her knowledge and experience, and she did it all with a mischievous smile or hearty laugh.
She brought so much joy to everyone who knew her or was lucky enough to see her immaculate work, and was such a kind and helpful person, much loved by many.
We will miss her.
