This is just a short message to introduce myself as I have agreed to take on the role of group leader of Flowers for Fun. The first meeting of the group for 2020 will be at 10.30 on Friday, 24th January, at the Coffee Cup (formerly the Bee Hive) in Castle Street.
My husband and I moved to Bolsover early last year and joined BDU3A as soon as we became aware that there was a branch here. I have done mainly church flower arranging for several years and it is a hobby which I thoroughly enjoy. However, the purpose of our first meeting is to discuss what the group as a whole wishes to do for the forthcoming year, so your views will be very welcome. It will not be necessary to bring flowers, oasis or any other materials this time.
We have spaces for new members, if you are interested in exploring the art of flower arranging and learning new skills, why not join us on the 24th to find out what we have planned.
I look forward to seeing you  on the 24th.
Kind regards,
