The members of the group provide a good core of enthusiastic, although amateur, flower arrangers and the aim is to have at least one arrangement in church every Sunday (except during Lent and Advent). There is a two-weekly rota to which members of the congregation are invited to sign up, and who take responsibility for the flower arrangements during that two-week period. Usually this only involves one duty each year.
For festivals (Easter, Harvest and Christmas) we operate an ‘All Hands on Deck’ policy and hope that as many people as possible will come on the Saturday morning to arrange. On these occasions contributions of greenery and, if possible, flowers are requested from the congregation, and also sufficient flowers are purchased to provide each arrangement with a base.
The group is always keen to welcome new volunteers, with or without expertise! Please contact Barbie Watson for further details.
