Welcome to the Northern Ireland Group of Flower Arrangement Societies Area of NAFAS website.

Enjoy browsing through our site, as we hope to keep you informed, as to what floral events are happening around the area. 

We are affiliated to NAFAS the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies a registered charity. Currently the NIGFAS Area has 21 clubs with a membership of 1000. Our aim is to encourage all in the art of flower arranging, through demonstrations, talks, classes, flower festivals and show work. Many of these activities take place in local flower clubs to which you would be made most welcome. 

No experience is necessary to join a flower club. Go along to one, you might discover a new talent! Please click on Flower Clubs to find one near you. 

NIGFAS take an active part in the Belfast Spring and Autumn Fairs, teaching step by step flower arranging for all. Come and see us at our stand. See the Belfast Parks Department events brochures or website for details of these Shows.

As your new Chairman, on your behalf I want to congratulate some of our talented members who have achieved great success over the past few weeks.

First of all congratulation to James Burnside and Alan Beatty who have both been successful in their National Speakers test . This a great achievement and they should both be very proud as indeed is NIGFAS. We look forward to hearing them entertain us in the future.
James is now the first National Speaker, Demonstrator, Judge and Tutor in our area. Again hearty congratulations to him. To Christopher White who is an independent member of NIGFAS, congratulations on attaining his National Demonstrators test. 

Now, someone else we must say a big congratulations to is Jackie Catherwood. Jackie has won 2x 1st, 1x 2nd, 1x Highly Commended and Overall Winner in the NAFAS Photography Competition 2016.
Again this is a huge honour and I was very privileged to be able to pick up her awards at NAFAS AGM.  Jackie, on behalf of NIGFAS very well done.

We have so much talent within NIGFAS of which we should all be very proud . I would encourage you to make use of all talent by booking our Demonstrators, Speakers, Judges and Tutors for your Club Events.

Once again, many, many congratulations to all our prize winners.
