Affiliated to NAFAS (National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies)
If you have never visited a Flower Club before, please join us for an evening to watch a highly skilled flower arranger demonstrate their art and amuse you with their wit and repartee. All arrangements are raffled, so you may even take one home with you. Watch out for posters around the village. Visitors are always very welcome, so just turn up.
You do not have to be a flower arranger to join us — many of our members come along solely to be entertained. However, if you wish to learn we can point you in the right direction for classes at all levels, and opportunities to take part in competitive work. The club is affiliated to NAFAS which opens up further opportunities for club members to join in activities across Cheshire and the rest of the UK.
Second Wednesday of each month except August and December. 7:30pm

Slimming World’s members follow a ‘Food Optimising’ eating plan, take moderate activity through its ‘Body Magic’ programme, and have group support through shared experience with other slimmers to encourage behaviour change, called IMAGE Therapy. Slimming World’s eating plan is based on the science of satiety (the satisfying qualities of food) and energy density. Foods that satisfy the appetite and are low in energy density, such as fruit and vegetables, pasta, potatoes, fish and lean meat, are called ‘Free Foods’ and can be eaten without weighing, counting or measuring. Foods which are often banned on other weight-loss plans, are allowed within Food Optimising, and these are controlled by a “Syns” counting system.
Each session lasts approximately an hour
Every Wednesday morning 9:30
Wednesday afternoon 17:00
Wednesday evening 19:00

Mah-Jongg has been going since well before the 1800’s and in the 1920’s Britain it went crazy and divided the country between those whom played British Mah-Jongg and those whom played American Mah-Jongg, however by the end of the 1920’s the British Mah-Jongg remained the most popular game and anyone who had money owned a British Mah-Jongg set.
British Mah-Jongg consists of 148 tiles because the 4 blanks are needed for Goulash and although the BMJA has come up with a solution by using the 2 bamboos because British Mah-Jongg sets are hard to get now this is a deviation from the original rules.
The best tiles are made from bamboo and ivory or bone and have beautiful hand-painted pictures representing the face of each tile. Traditionally, the Flowers, Seasons and the One of Bamboos come in for particular artistic creativity.
Mah-jongg sets provided. Instruction given
Coffee/tea break at half time.
Tuesdays 10:00 – 13:00 £3
Thurdays 18:30 – 21:30
