Annual Report - April 2017

The Flower Guild has had another very busy year. We have decorated the church right through the year, working on a 2-week rota, with pedestals in the Lady Chapel and by the chancel steps and an arrangement on the font. In addition we have decorated the whole church for the three main festivals of Christmas, Easter and Harvest Festival. We have also decorated the church for five weddings/blessings.

Unfortunately we were unable to organise either a coffee morning or a flower demonstration this year. This has affected our income and we need to arrange both events during 2017. The cost of flowers has increased dramatically and we will have to find ways to both cut down our expenditure and increase our funds. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

During the re-ordering of the church this coming year there will not be any weddings in Holy Trinity Church and we will not be arranging flowers from the commencement of the works in June/July. It is hoped that it will be possible to arrange flowers for the Christmas services.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of the Flower Guild who have so willingly given up their time and used their creativity to keep the church looking so splendid throughout the year.
