Flower Guild


flowerguildThe flower guild was formed almost 40 years ago to ensure that our church is always decorated with flowers appropriate for the season.

We welcome new members who do not need any previous experience in flower arranging; help is always available and occasionally we have a demonstration lesson.

Members are expected to help for two sessions during the year of two weeks each, (flowers usually last for two weeks), and also at the main festivals of Christmas and Easter.

A flower festival is held during the Minchinhampton fayre weekend, which is in September; this has been very successful in raising funds for charity.

We are often asked for special arrangements for weddings and funerals. There is a charge for this service which goes to help our funds.

Annual Report - April 2019

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.

The Flower Guild is looking for Dummies

We are organising a Wedding Festival in the Church for the Country Fayre weekend – 13th / 14th / 15th September.

We are looking for some mannequins (dummies) to display wedding dresses. If you have one you could loan us, that would be great.

Also if you would like to take part in the display by offering to loan us a dress, we would be pleased to hear from you.
