Aberdeen's Afternoon Club was founded in 1964, our objective is 'Friendship through Flowers'.

The Club gives an opportunity for relaxing, learning, and being entertained by excellent Floral Art Demonstrators from all over the country, who arrange flowers and foliage in a variety of ways to a chosen theme. These arrangements are raffled at the end of each meeting.

Our Club gives you the chance to meet new friends and enjoy the company of others.
