Rota for Church Flowers 2018
..... The sign-up sheet for January to June 2018 is on the wall in the corridor near the Parlour door, and will soon be followed by the one for the second part of the year. Very few dates have names by them so far! This is, therefore, a plea for anyone who is willing to be part of the 'Flower Team' to sign up for next year, particularly the early dates like January and February.
For those who find it easier making arrangements electronically, please email your preferred dates to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org and
I will confirm whether they are free as I update the chart on the computer weekly. We invite everyone to be part of the flower rota on a date or dates in the year which are of special significance. 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 Ann know.
