Rota for Church Flowers 2019
Thank you to everyone who has provided flowers for church during 2018. The sign- up sheet for the first half of 2019 is on the wall in the corridor near the Parlour door — but it is currently looking very blank! Please have a look at it in the next few weeks and sign up for the dates of your choice, to make sure we have some names on the rota at least for January and February.
We invite everyone to be part of the flower rota on a date or dates in the year which are of special significance. Perhaps there are birthdays or anniversaries of people who mean a lot to you, or whose memory you wish to celebrate. You can also choose where the flowers go afterwards — either by taking them to someone yourself or by nominating the person to receive them and they can be delivered on your behalf. Otherwise, just leave that column blank and the flowers will be taken to someone for whom it's pastorally appropriate. Finally, even if you don't consider yourself as a skilled flower arranger, it's not a problem.
Flowering plants in pots are perfectly acceptable alternatives to cut flowers, or we can find someone else to arrange your flowers for you. If you have any queries about the Church flowers rota and arrangements, please let Diane B. or me know.
Many thanks, Ann
