Welcome to
Milford Floral Art Club



We are a thriving and sociable Flower Club in Milford on Sea for members of all ages and backgrounds. What we have in common is a love of flowers and crucially a keen interest in floral design and flower arranging.



Why not come and develop your interest - no experience necessary and you can look forward to a warm welcome.



FLORAL ART IS AS INDIVIDUAL AS YOU ARE

About Us

Whether you are planning to become a member, or just wish to pay us a visit to explore what goes on, or perhaps are happy to be entertained by one of our talented Designers we encourage you to come along to our monthly meetings. These are held on the second Thursday of each month between 2.00pm and 4.00pm. Doors open at 1.30pm at All Saints’ Church Hall, Greenbanks Close, Milford on Sea, Hants S041 0SQ. There is free parking available. One of the highlights at most of our meetings is that you have the opportunity to win a stunning flower arrangement created by our highly skilled Demonstrator!


We enjoy getting together with likeminded people over a cuppa and occasionally sharing a buffet, to enjoy a varied and informative programme of:

Demonstrations by NAFAS* presenters, who create five or six stunning flower and foliage exhibits of traditional and contemporary design.

Supportive Workshops for those eager to increase skills and floral techniques.

Opportunities to get involved in Flower Festivals both locally and across the region.

Occasional Evening Classes for Beginners and Improvers together with tips and notes.

Associated Outings - Social and Fundraising Events - Entertainment & Friendship

Shopping opportunities at our sales table offering a variety of useful floral sundries and imaginative and decorative items to aid your creativity

You can order 'The Flower Arranger' and 'Window on Wessex' magazines to discover what's going on in the area and become motivated by ideas, illustrations and step by step designs that will inspire you.

Our affiliation to NAFAS* provides access to years of knowledge and experience that our club can utilise. National news, international events, education, conferences, partnerships, top Demonstrators and Speakers to name but a few benefits.

Milford Floral Art Club was established in 1983. We celebrate our 35th Coral Anniversary in June 2018.
