NAFAS National AGM 2020

 

If you missed The National AGM broadcast live last week

it can be viewed on the NAFAS YouTube channel.

 

We are all affiliated to the Association,

and this meeting will be very interesting and informative.

 

Chairman's September Update 

 

A Newsletter is being prepared that will bring you up-to-date with all Club and NAFAS News. In the mean time it has been decided to cancel future meetings until our AGM in February 2021. The November workshop has also been cancelled.

The AGM will be shorter than usual, so a flower demonstration by David Wright has been booked for Monday 15th February 2021.

 

If you feel inspired to create an arrangement, perhaps an Autumn or Harvest design, we'd love to share it with our friends on this site, or use it on our Newsletter.

Please keep well and stay safe. The virus clearly hasn't gone away!

 

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

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.
