GARDENERS WORLD LIVE 2023
A Silver Merit was awarded to the South Midlands Area of NAFAS for their "A Kings Country Garden" at Gardeners World Live last week.
Many Thanks to the team - Louisa Rigden, Janet Cooper, Jill Slater and Maria Owen for all their help and support, not forgetting all the ladies who came in "to man the stall" during the four days of the show, not easy being in a marquee with the weather we had last week, either for the flowers or us, but thankfully we all survived.
Well done everyone, team work at its best..Lyn
Congratulations to all who took part in the National Show at Gloucester
