Coronavirus – Letter from Area Chairman 15 April 2020

Dear Friends,

I write on behalf of your Area Committee and myself.  We trust you are keeping well in these uncertain times and we wish you the happiest Easter possible.

Your Area Committee is always ready to help,  give advice and financial assistance.

The Flower Arranger is out now but there are bound to be difficulties of delivery as no clubs are meeting.  Some clubs may be able to post some but please bear with your club Flower Arranger Officer.

Disappointedly, we have had to postpone the Ingatestone Flower Festival to next year.  Also, Capel Manor College’s Flower Festival,  the NAFAS 20’s Weekend and Chelsea are all postponed.

In place of Council, we will try to send reports in order to keep you in touch.

We have been informed that the staff at NAFAS headquarters are working from home with the telephone transferred to them. They are able to answer your questions as usual.  Virtual Board meetings are taking place on Friday mornings so they will be able to respond to the ever-changing circumstances.

Best wishes and stay safe,

Ken Law

Area Chairman
