Corby Flower Club

Corby Flower Club was formed in March 2012.

We are a small friendly club who meet at the Corby Silver Band Club, Denford Road, Corby NN17 2QW on the last Thursday of each month at 7.30 p.m.

Membership is £32.50 for the year and visitors can attend for £5.00 per visit (please note some meetings have a small extra charge and are detailed on our programme).

Club News

As we leave our 2014-15 year behind we take away lots of wonderful memories and new found knowledge.

As we start our new membership year, we have a wonderful programme of demonstrations, workshops and events arranged. We will be once again taking part in the Burghley Flower Festival in October and will also be competing at the Malvern Spring Show, Chelsea Flower Show and also our own Area Show in June.

We also see the return of Jonathan Moseley for a Day School in September which is now nearly sold out with just a couple of spaces left.

It is a very exciting time for the club and wish all members who are taking part - good luck. .

Jonathan Moseley Christmas Workshop 8th November 2014

Following the fundraiser a workshop was held at Rockingham Village Hall attended by non-members and members of Corby Flower Club.

All attending enjoyed a day with Jonathan making a fabulous festive arrangement.

We had a lot of fun and all came away with amazing creations.

All also enjoyed a lunch and homemade cakes.

The workshop was so popular that requests came in for Jonathan to visit again with another workshop.

There is much anticipation as Jonathan has kindly agreed to do an Autumn workshop in September 2015 and immediately we have received bookings for this "Don't Miss" event
