Wow Factor - 17 April

Shirley Sexton won the Wow Factor competition. She will go on to represent BB&O in the WAFA Elimination competition at the NAFAS 2015 Festive Food and Flowers show in Blackpool. To avoid compromising Shirley's exhibit in the second stage competition no photo of her exhibit will be included here.

The National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS) is a network of 21 geographic areas, comprising around 1,300 flower clubs and 75,000 members.

The 53 affiliated Flower Clubs in the Berks, Bucks and Oxon area meet regularly (usually monthly) for flower arranging demonstrations, workshops, talks, competitions, visits to places of floral interest and social events. 

New members and visitors are welcome at all skill levels, even if you only want to sit and watch.  Contemporary floral design groups run workshops for more advanced designers.  Local colleges run leisure classes as well as diploma level floral art and design courses.
