Welcome to the NAFAS East of England website

We're one of the 21 Areas which make up the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies
(NAFAS)
. We have 79 Clubs plus two Junior clubs. Due to the expanse of our Area we are divided into five Groups:  Cambridge, Colchester, East Suffolk, King's Lynn and Norwich

You'll find details of dates for meetings, shows and events and can browse the photo galleries.  There's information and contact details for the Area team and the Area's five Groups.  We have all the Latest News and Chairman's Chat as well as the most recent Spotlight East newsletter.  The Area has a good representation of Judges, Demonstrators, Speakers and Teachers.  There's also lots of information about flower arranging courses and classes in the Education section.

If you love flowers and are interested in flower arranging, why not visit your local flower club?  Just come and meet new people, enjoy yourselves and learn a bit about flower arranging; visitors are always warmly welcomed.  Details of all the clubs may be found on the 'Groups' page.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

19th June - Area Council meeting - THIS MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELLED - After a heart searching time it has been decided NOT to hold the Council meeting in June as previously planned. The main reason for the decision is that the Area show is to be held the week before the meeting and many of the members and the Executive committee will be working in Hunstanton for most of the previous week. Any correspondence that would have been passed on at Council will be emailed out to Clubs as has now become the norm. We look forward to seeing many of you at the Show in Hunstanton. There is still time to enter the competitions!
