Our theme this year, Celebrating the Colours of the Rainbow, gives us the opportunity to share the wonder of God’s creation with our community and with friends old and new. It will enable us to fill the church with the wonder of God’s Creation through the beauty of flowers. The rainbow is a symbol of God’s faithfulness and mercy promised to Noah at the end of the flood.
The Festival is on Friday May 24th Saturday May 25th and Monday May 27th with slight variations in times from previous years, opening from 10 am – 4 pm.
There will be plants for sale and refreshments served all day.
On Sunday 26th there will be a Celebration Service for the 10th anniversary of The Friends of St. Andrew’s (FoStA) in church at 10.30am followed by lunch, everyone is welcome. As the church will be is use for most of the day the Flower Festival will reopen on the Monday.
The Flower Festival is always a wonderful coming together of the whole community so please consider supporting us by doing an arrangement, or if that sounds too daunting perhaps you could sponsor someone to do one on your behalf. Offers of help over the weekend would be more than welcome.
The preparations of the arrangements will take place over the preceding two days as usual.
Everyone is invited to be involved with the Flower Festival. For more information please contact Sheila Waring Tel: 01288 321 813 or email at email@example.com
