About Us

Who we are & what we do

The Three Counties and South Wales Area is run by a council consisting of a representative from every club in the Area.

This council meets four times per year in Ross-on-Wye, and delegates the day to day running of the Area to an Executive committee consisting of a Chairman, 1st Vice-Chairman and 2nd Vice-Chairman, each of whom serve for three years. Also a Secretary, Treasurer, Chairman of Area Judges, Demonstrators, Speakers and Education committee (known as JDS&E) and the current President of the Area.

The Area also sends representatives to the National Committees for JDS&E, photography, trading and media, which enables a two-way traffic for ideas and suggestions.

An Area Day is held annually, comprising a talk, demonstration, competitions, and sales tables. This, together with a President’s Day which raises funds for Area’s work, enables members from all parts of our area to renew and make new friendships.  

The JDS&E committee also run refresher days and training for Area tests for Judges, Speakers and Demonstrators, and competitors.

The Area regularly co-ordinates Flower Festivals in Cathedrals and other suitable venues to which all clubs are invited to participate.

A twice-yearly magazine – Area News – is produced to give Club news, details of forthcoming events, competition schedules and winners, a list of Area Officers, interesting articles, quizzes, etc., and this is available to all members.
