Jane Walden

NAFAS Area Judge

Also see: Teachers

Jane lives in Keyworth, near Nottingham and has been a member of Nottingham Flower Club since 1980. She started competing at 7 years of age whilst living in Peterborough. Due to work and family commitments a long break from competing was necessary. A change of career in 1999 with formal qualifications, managing a Florist’s shop, creating bespoke wedding flowers and teaching leisure classes was the chance to start competing again. The natural progression was into judging to understand competitive work more fully. Jane became an Area Judge in 2012.

Jane is the NAFAS representative at the Nottinghamshire Show for the Floral Art competition. There is always a challenge to keep up to date with current trends with the staging and schedule writing.

Jane is available to judge at Flower Clubs and judges many floral art competitions at local horticultural shows. Help will always be given for schedule writing, with many ideas for appropriate themes and class titles.
