Flower Festival

Once again I have so many people to thank for a lovely weekend.  The weather was perfect and the Church looked stunning with flowers, crafts and bygones.

Firstly thanks to Gaynor, who took over the organizing of teas on such a bad weekend for her, many thanks, I could not do it without you.  Its a job for life, Gaynor!  To all the helpers on the teas rota, thank you.  To Jill for the use of the Old Chapel, many thanks.  It was a lovely setting to work in.  Thanks to all the cake makers.  As usual the cakes were delicious, and we do have such a reputation to keep up.  Well done once more.

Thanks to Janet and Brian for the use of the field for the car park.  Thanks to the dry weather too at least the field did not churn up too much this time.

Many many thanks to Heather for her trip to the flower market in Birmingham and to the many florists and greengrocers to get all the items we needed, as well as for the endless printing.  Thanks also to all those on the rota who looked after the church for an hour or two.  Thank you Rhian for your help with the advertising, and thanks to everyone who loaned craft goods, implements and bygones, which added so much interest to the display.

Lastly what would we do without the team (Carol Fox, Janet Gardner, Helen Thompson, Rosemary Brown, Diane Harper, Doreen Neal, Heather Brennan, Rosemary Horbury, Linda Synge, Ann Nethercleft, Joyce and John McKail) who put in days of hard work.  We did however have fun doing it and all worked together to get the Church looking as wonderful as it did.  Over 300 was raised.

Apart from the Harvest Supper this was the last fund-raising event of the year, so may I remind everybody that the scarecrows will be back in the third weekend of June next year.  You have been warned and you have the whole of the winter to come up with a new load of bright ideas.
