NAFAS in the Home Counties

Some members may not be aware that part of the annual membership fee collected by your local Bedford Club is paid over as affiliation fees to the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS). This means that every member of the Bedford Club is a member of NAFAS too and is therefore entitled to attend Area and National events organised either directly by NAFAS or by the Area – Home Counties – that Bedford falls in.  The Home Counties Area covers 60 clubs, in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and some of Essex.

Below is a diary of Area and National events that might be of interest to you.
