BLACKPOOL Flower Club celebrates its golden anniversary with a gala flower arranging demonstration by Derek Armstrong.
But it is not in its usual meeting place of Staining Village Hall, last Wednesday of each month. Instead, the event is on Tuesday (April 24) in the Washington Suite at Blackpool’s Imperial Hotel. Derek has demonstrated in Japan, USA, Ireland, Germany and throughout the UK. He has worked with BBC and ITV on documentaries and period drama, and was part of the North West team of the National Association of Flower Arranging Societies which won gold at last year’s Chelsea Flower Show. Tuesday’s gala demonstration, in aid of the North West Air Ambulance, starts at 7.30pm and members have decided it should be open to the public. Tickets for this spectacular occasion can be purchased on the day.
