Rota for Church Flowers 2018
....Thank you to everyone who has provided flowers for church this year. It is now time to try and complete the rota for next year.
The sign-up sheet for January to June 2018 is on the wall in the corridor near the Parlour door.
For those who find it easier making arrangements electronically, please email your preferred dates to this address: email@example.com and I will confirm whether they are free as I update the chart on the computer weekly. (The sign-up chart for July to December will appear at the end of the year.)
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 they go afterwards — either taking them to someone yourself, or 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 is pastorally appropriate.
Finally, if a concern about your flower arranging skill is deterring you from signing up, please don't let it. Flowering plants in pots are welcome alternatives to cut flowers, or you could ask someone else to arrange your flowers for you.
If you have any queries about the Church flowers rota and arrangements, please let Diane or me know.
Many thanks, Ann
