Today we would have been in Folkestone at our Area Day to celebrate our Diamond Anniversary and been able to raise a toast to the Area's past and to its future as we move forward with Flowers and Friendship. Sadly this virus has prevented us from meeting but let us all raise a glass (literally or metaphorically) wherever we are to every member of Kent Area of NAFAS and to soon being able to be back together again. Cheers!

For the third edition in a row, Kent Area members have featured in the Flower Arranger. Look out for designs from Jacqui Arnold, Helen Hare, Ellouise Hasler-Stott and Anne Luckett. What a wealth of talent we have here.
Over the Bank Holiday weekend Jacqui and Sue gave presentations on the Friends of NAFAS Facebook page. Jacqui shared a demonstration from her beautiful garden and Sue spoke about her experience of being part of the Kent Team who did the Chelsea exhibit - she was even wearing her pink jacket!
