Hans attended the National Flower Arranging Show 2015 in Blackpool at the Winter Gardens organised by NAFAS, (National Association of Flower Arrangement Society). The show was packed full of design inspirations and demonstrations and included an extensive range of competitions. The event was a huge success for the organisers and Hans had the added bonus of not only being in attendance but winning several awards for his entry in the class entitled “Indulgence”. He was given “Best in Show” and also “Best Use of Foliage”. His prize for winning was being awarded the NAFAS bursary to compete on behalf of the UK at The World Flower Show, in June 2017 in Barbados.
