Welcome to the North East Area of NAFAS

We are delighted to announce the launch of the North East Area Spring Competition.
Now that we are missing our monthly fix of flower club meetings, here is a simple and fun way to still keep involved in the beautiful world of flowers.
The title of the competition is “New Beginnings”
The competition is open to any member of a North East Area Club.
Any plant material can be used, especially flowers and foliage from the garden.
The design can be of any style and any size.
Once you have created your design, please take one or two photographs of it (from different angles) and email it to me at
nafas.northeast.web@gmail.com with your name and Club details.
I will then post your pictures (anonymously) on both our Facebook page and the Area website
The Competition closes on Saturday 25 April, and after that date the designs will be judged (using the pictures only) and the results posted. Perhaps when we have returned to some semblance of normality, a prize can be awarded at an Area Council meeting.
Good luck!

The North East Area of NAFAS is one of the 21 Areas within the United Kingdom which make up the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS). Within the Area, which covers the whole of Yorkshire plus parts of Teesside there are 4808 members of 61 clubs.
The Area’s objectives are to represent the interests of NAFAS within the our Area and to advance public education in the art of flower arranging and related subjects.
If you enjoy flowers and would like to learn more about floral design there will be a Club near you waiting to welcome you to share in their friendship and love of flowers.


Guidance statement regarding short notice cancellations issued by HQ:
When a demonstration is cancelled at short notice, it is hoped that clubs will reimburse in good faith the demonstrator for money already expended on flowers etc. as per the contractual obligations of the Blue Form. NAFAS asks that Clubs and Demonstrators communicate over any cancellation, and come to an agreement over any payment. We would hope that only out of pocket expenses would be claimed. Perhaps Clubs could put the cancelled presenter to the top of the list when they do the next Club programme. Those who are self-employed will find it hard, but we must balance that against health, sense and making the most of the difficult times we are experiencing.
