Judges, Demonstrators, Speakers and Education Committee (J.D.S. & E.)
NAFAS judges are available to judge at flower arranging shows, whatever the size or location. Judges are qualified at both Area and National level and are happy to attend work nights at flower clubs to judge and give constructive comments on matters relating to competitive work.
Cheshire Area has a number of National and Area qualified judges.
NAFAS Demonstrators, qualified at Area and National level, give demonstrations of artistry and inspiration to delight audiences of all sizes and they play a very important part in the programme of flower clubs. Each month audiences are entertained as beautiful floral displays are produced ranging from classical to contemporary designs. Titles for their demonstrations are often intriguing and thought provoking. Audiences can enjoy a live performance combining art, horticulture and theatre and, if lucky, win a display in the raffle to take home.

Antiques to Horticulture, Herbal Medicine to Travel - all these and far more are the subjects of presentations which will fill your stage with delightful and interesting displays when you book a NAFAS Speaker. Qualified Area and National Speakers are waiting for you to book them to entertain your Club or Area. They can speak at any sort of event on so many varied subjects. Exploring unusual and intriguing subjects allied to flowers and plants in a light hearted way is our speciality.
NAFAS Teachers are available to run workshops or longer courses in flower arranging for all levels of ability.
The Area also maintains a list of classes taking place within Cheshire Area.
