The group’s 25th Anniversary celebration took the form of a coach trip on 14th June 2000 for a day of unadulterated luxury with a visit to Greyabbey House, the home of the Hon. Daphne Montgomery. An account of the day was recorded as follows:-
In brilliant sunshine members and friends of Ballymena Floral Art Group spent a very enjoyable day in Co Down on Wednesday 14 June 2000 as part of their 25th anniversary celebrations.
The party spent some time in Newtownards and Mount Stewart Gardens before proceeding to Greyabbey House, the home of the Montgomery family.
After a delicious lunch there, Mrs Daphne Montgomery took the ladies on a guided tour of the house and gardens.
The outing ended with a look around the antique shops in Greyabbey and tea in the Courtyard Café.
