Although like every organisation all meetings are cancelled until further notice, Chippenham Flower Club is alive and well, but with a new way of working and keeping contact.

We have held three ZOOM Committee meetings, having had a practice run in first of all. We also have a Telephone Tree to keep in touch with our members.

Facebook is proving most successful and growing in interest with new input on a regular basis. On June 13, many of us enjoyed a really super floral demonstration via Facebook by Arnaud Metaire (area demonstrator at and a video of that has been posted together with the virtual tour of his garden just a few weeks ago.

To keep our flower arranging skills up to scratch, quite a few members decorated a hat in readiness for virtual Ascot Races coming up at the end of June.

If you would like any further information about the Flower Club, please contact Chairman, Mrs Dorryta Hayward, on 01249 653322 or Secretary, Mrs Betty Annett, on 01249 814464.
