A flower arranging club that has been going for 54 years has closed after members were unable to form a committee.
Sadly nobody wanted to take on the responsibility, said Noreen de Lozey, programme secretary.
“It is a growing trend among flower clubs - the latest speaker at March Flower Club said she had seen two other clubs close in recent months for the same reason,” said Mrs de Lozey.
“Sadly after 54 years the club has ceased to operate,” she said.
“Some of the club members are now in their 90s.
