Profile – Rosemary McGowan (2022)

A photograph of Rosemary McGowanNovember 2022 will see me stand down from the role as Area President but I shall continue as an Area Judge and support the Area.

I have been a flower club member for 30 years plus, since I joined an evening flower arranging class led by the late Penelope Everett in Aylesbury.  I then did City and Guilds courses part 1 and 2 with Jane Rowton Lee which led me to train as and become an Area demonstrator.  I demonstrated for a couple of years and later trained and qualified as an Area judge.  In more recent times I successfully completed the NAFAS level 4 diploma course.

I have always enjoyed competing at Club, Area and National level, winning some awards.  Over the years I have been part of a team, several times representing the Area at national level, winning awards, which include Gold at Malvern Spring show in 2015.

I was Area Treasurer for five challenging years and have served on two previous Area show committees.  I have been involved on the BB&O show committee at the Blenheim Palace Flower Show in several roles.

My hobby is likely to continue to be part of life.
