With the fascination for flower arranging in post war years, the Hampshire Floral Decoration Society was formed in 1954, becoming the Flower Arrangement Association of Wessex in 1960 and affiliating to NAFAS. Finally becoming the Wessex & Jersey Area of NAFAS in 1982.
Our Area covers Hampshire, South Wiltshire, part of East Dorset, the Isle of Wight and the Channel Island of Jersey. Wessex & Jersey members participate in flower festivals and exhibitions including Flower festivals in Winchester, Salisbury and Portsmouth Cathedrals, raising money for worthy causes and bringing much joy to many people.
The Area Newsletter (1973), re-named ‘Window on Wessex’ after three issues, is now a substantial magazine containing essential Area and National information for its members. Effective in 2020 it is available virtually online via the area web page.
Wessex & Jersey Area of NAFAS supports education in all aspects of Flower Arranging. We have just over 50 clubs with 1,900 members.
A proactive Area welcoming new members and visitors alike.
