BFAS on the Web News!

Those of you who were at the Addison Centre last Tuesday evening may well have noticed a man with a video camera was also there.  He and his colleague were from  – a web based Bedfordshire news service.  They have made a short film about Bedford Floral Art Society which can be viewed below.  To see other events that they have covered just go to their website at

Please note that although in the video it says we meet on the first Tuesday of each month, there is no meeting in January.  February 3rd will be the next club night and will be the AGM for BFAS.  Our next floral art demonstration evening will be on March 3rd when we will be entertained by Jackie O’Hare presenting ‘The Mad March Hare’

Jean Crane – A Time to Rejoice

On 2nd December we were delighted to have Jean Crane come along to the club to create some floral arrangements along the theme of ‘A Time to Rejoice’.  Despite the bitterly cold weather, a huge number of members and visitors attended and were entertained by Jean’s anecdotes of family life as well as some stunning flowers.  We also laid down a challenge to everyone present to help us raise some extra money towards this years chosen charity – The Road Victims Trust based in Kempston.  We raised £42 on the night which will be added to the money we have already raised throughout the year from sales on the Plant stall.  A few photo’s from the evening are below.
