 December 2020 Christmas Demonstration

 

 Adele's Christmas Flower Demonstration was truly amazing.

It was so good to see each other for the first time since our March Meeting.

Adele worked very hard, doing two dems in the space of a few hours

but she has received a great deal of positive feedback from

very happy flower arrangers which made it all worthwhile!

 

Sorry if you couldn't join the online Zoom demonstration.

You missed a real treat!!

Government's Covid-19 slogan  "Hands, Face and Space". 

 

Please keep well and stay safe.  

We're all missing each other, please keep in touch.

 

Our flowery treats will return - happy days!

National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies

 

Norwich Flower Club is affiliated to the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS). Flower arranging clubs and societies banded together as the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies in 1959. The Association has since been a unifying and guiding mainstay to thousands of men, women and juniors whose love of flowers has opened up a whole new world of creativity. In 1984 NAFAS was granted charitable status in recognition of its education activities. It ranks among the most notable specialised National Associations.

 

 

Norwich Flower Club lies within NAFAS Area 1 (East of England).The East of England Area was formed in 1954 and is the largest of the 21 Areas of NAFAS.  There are 107 clubs with one junior club.  Because of the geographical spread of the Area, which extends some 7,000 square miles, a decision was made in 1958 to form Groups within the Area.  The five Groups, namely Cambridge, Colchester, East Suffolk, King's Lynn and Norwich act as a liaison between the Clubs within their Group and the Area Association.
