THE Cheshire Area of NAFAS (National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies) has added not one but two awards to their long list of achievements following a successful stint at last week’s RHS show.
This year’s team, Dawn Weaver, Eleanor Griffiths, Alison Cooper and Angela Haswell, achieved Gold and ‘Best in the Floral Marquee’ for their exhibit entry.
The exhibit’s design was inspired by the work of Russian painter and art theorist Wassily Kandinsky.
When asked what the experience had been like, the team said it was ‘a challenge worth doing’ and that they were delighted that their shear hard work had paid off.
The Cheshire Area of NAFAS has supported and entered the show every year since 1999. Amongst their awards are; three Silvers, four Silver Gilts, five Golds and three ‘Best in Flora Design Studios’.
Chris Gibbons, publicity officer for Cheshire Area of NAFAS, said: “The response from the public has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic and has created a lot of enquiries about the location of flower clubs in the UK.
“Each year, the competitors in the Tatton Show manage to improve and amaze the public with their talent and interpretations of the show titles.
“NAFAS members will be there again in 2015 to compete, delight and entertain the public with flowers, friendship and fun.”
