Rota for Church Flowers 2017
....Thank you to everyone who has already responded to the request for signing up to do flowers for church this year. We are covered until Easter with just one exception. Is there anyone who would like to do 9th April? If so, please let me know or sign the rota in the corridor, and hopefully the spaces for later in the year will gradually be filled too.
The flowers are distributed each week, so if you are aware of anyone for whom it is appropriate to receive them, please let me know. They are given with a message of love and care from our whole church family.
Most weeks it isn't difficult for me to identify someone who would appreciate such an acknowledgement. However, it is always good to receive other suggestions too.
