We have had a very busy year. We have provided flowers for 4 major Festivals – Easter, Holy Trinity, Harvest and Christmas as well as the Rededication last April, when the Bishop and HRH Princess Anne came to visit. We had six weddings last year which included three weddings in one week in the middle of August. This year in September we have the Minchinhampton Country Fayre and this will be a major event for the Flower Guild. We are busy preparing a Wedding Celebration and this will take place over the weekend of 13/15th September in the Church. So far, we have promises of twelve dresses and seven mannequins – so if you have either a dress or a mannequin we would love to hear from you!
On a sad note we only have 2 x weddings booked this year which will greatly effect our income for the year. We are, however, organising a fund raising Coffee Morning on Friday 21st June in Mandy & John Jutsum’s garden, so do please come along and support this event.
Two of our members have retired this year – Sue Waddington and Yvonne Crew and we thank them for all their hard work over many years.
