HELP PLEASE

We are only a small team at present and would much appreciate help either on the Committee or as an Ad Hoc helper at events.

We particularly need a Treasurer and IT/ Marketing support.

It is not a huge commitment and we are flexible and friendly.

Do contact me if you can help in any way. Ann Wragg Chair Floral Arts

We much appreciate the contribution from GFAS which has enabled us to set off on this journey which was a huge leap of faith with little experience and unknowns such as event pricing.

We have refined our systems and are just about breaking even but need you please to attend our events regularly so that we can book with confidence specially chosen Demonstrators / Teachers and keep prices as low as possible.
