Flower arranging club closes – because no one has time for hobbies anymore
Exeter, which was really big.
"People have less time now and everything's getting more expensive."
In 1971 the group, then called the St Budeaux and District Flower Arranging Club, held its first meeting.

Dorothy had no interest in flower arranging at the time, but decided to take it up after leaving her job as a hairdresser when she got married.
"I think there were about 40 of us at the first ever meeting," she recalled. "After that I got really interested in it.
"Because I was no longer doing hairdressing, it was a nice creative outlet and gave me something to do.
"You have to have a real eye for flower arranging, and I was always very critical; I could always find something not quite right.
"But things are changing now - flower arranging has gone more down the art route, and I'm not so keen on that.
"It's a lot more contemporary too, and I think that loses the beauty of the flowers."
The flower club has participated in many big events over the decades, and has held displays at Buckfast Abbey, Exeter Cathedral and Mount Edgcumbe House.
Dorothy said: "I am sad we are finishing, but I have the memories and nobody can take them away from me."
She added: "I enjoy doing it so much, it is so relaxing and very therapeutic.
"I wouldn't say it's going out of fashion, but people have less time now.
"It's getting more expensive to pay for demonstrators, hiring halls is expensive and flowers are getting more expensive too. If you don't have the members to pay for it, then you just won't be able to afford it."
