Jenny Jefferies - Focus Magazine Editor
The flower arranging bug is in the genes, my cousin also called Jennifer, was trained as a florist by Constance Spry.
I joined Saltash Floral Art Club and St Budeaux & District Flower Club in 1974/75. After the arrival of my son Paul I belonged to St Budeaux Club only, holding various posts, programme secretary and meetings secretary. After retirement I re-joined Saltash Floral Art Club and am currently their programme secretary.
For a good few years now have been editor of the Devon & Cornwall Area Newsletter, the ‘Focus’ which, while on occasion been challenging, brings worth while benefits to the members of our area.
FOCUS - Devon and Cornwall Area's own magazine.

Julia Horscroft - The Flower Arranger magazine Officer
Flower Arranging was in my blood: helping my father with his entries for the local village show. I enrolled in a “proper” flower club and the rest is almost history. Progressing through committee I was introduced to Area Council meetings. I was cajoled into joining their Executive and became Area Chairman. Wishing to stay involved and continue meeting friends made, I “volunteered” to be AFAO which I still do today.
FLOWER ARRANGER MAGAZINE
The Flower Arranger is the superb full colour quarterly magazine of The National Association
of Flower Arrangement Societies.
Learn how to arrange flowers with step-by-step instructions and enhance your home with beautiful
floral designs. Enjoy up-to-date news and views on ever changing trends
The current crisis means getting the magazine to you is a bit more of a challenge. Please bear with the situation, your Flower Arranger Officer will try to make arrangements to get it to you when it is safe to do so. In the meantime highlights from the magazine will appear on Social Media, @flowermag on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
