Wistaston Flower Club opened their doors after lockdown for Flowers and Chat
Members and visitors enjoyed getting together again and becoming immersed in arranging the flowers provided. They brought scissors and a mask and the flower club team provided everything else.
Everyone agreed that they felt safe in the COVID secure setting and that it was wonderful to get out to do something different. There was no pressure to create award winning designs or follow flower arranging “rules” although some tips could be passed on from a safe distance. It was more about enjoying the flowers and company of fellow flower lovers.
From the club’s point of view, it gave us the opportunity to engage with our members, attract visitors and raise the profile of our club at an otherwise very quiet time. All five sessions have sold out with many signing up for repeat sessions. We hope to use the same format for at least one Christmas event.
