The Area Judges' Representative is Joyce Hearnshaw.
When l started my judge’s training l had no idea of the breadth of knowledge this would allow me to attain, not to mention the opportunities of meeting many of my fellow flower lovers and making new friends. It is with this in mind that l want to evolve the new challenge of Judges Representative and to keep abreast of all things NAFAS and the wider floral world, to promote the role of a judge and the qualities they bring to competitions and practice sessions in encouraging creativity at all levels of expertise.
The Role of the Judges Representative is to represent the North East Area’s Judges, to communicate news from the National Judging Committee and to report to the Area’s JDSE&P Committee, Area Executive and the North East Area Council.
Periodic refresher days are held to ensure that Area Judges are kept up to date. These days are instructive, inspiring and supportive.
