Message from NAFAS National Chairman, Dr Christina Curtis and Chief Executive Officer, Steven Lane:-
"The Summer issue of The Flower Arranger magazine is now out. We know how much you look forward to your 'flowery treat' but the cancellation of club meetings and lockdown make getting it to you a challenge.
Please bear with the situation and rest assured that your Flower Arranger Officer will try to make arrangements to get your magazine to you as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we will be posting some highlights from the magazine on social media @flowerarrmag on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
As ever the magazine is jam-packed with seasonal inspiration, step-by-steps and events. If you don't already subscribe, the cheapest way to get the magazine is via your club; please talk to your club Flower Arranger Officer. If you are not a club member call 01778 392491 for subscriptions."
