Church Of England Flower Arrangers' Association

Derby Branch of CEFAA

The Derby branch of CEFAA is made up of 27 members from across Derbyshire. We have links with Nottinghamshire branch and hope to develop these in the future.

We meet three to four times a year at different churches in the Derby Diocese.

At the AGM in March Linda Torr, a local florist in the Ashbourne area, demonstrated arrangements for the home, two arrangements included a cup and saucer.

On a sunny day in July, 23 members and friends visited Hope House Costume Museum in Alstonefield in the Peak District.

Joyce Lewis was the demonstrator for the autumn workshop. Once we had arranged our flowers she critiqued each one. Afterwards we all said how useful this was.

Margaret Phypers opened the doors of the church she attends in Derby City to try something different on a Saturday in November. Three members of CEFAA demonstrated an arrangement each with a Christmas theme.

We would welcome new members to the group at any time.
