Flowers at St Guthlacs

Easter Flowers

The beautiful flowers we see so often in St Guthlac's particularly for our special seasons are the result of a lot of time and hard work by our band of flower arrangers. We have an organiser and a dedicated team of volunteers working to a rota.

We are pleased to. have been able to have flowers in church again since late June. It was lovely to begin with flowers celebrating the long and happy marriage of Clive and Rosemary Hilton , followed by using a trailing fuchsia pot, vase of garden flowers and herbs for remembrance. Congratulations to Joanne Fowler on joining the flower group and for her first effort at creating a pedestal arrangement as this also coincided with the first 10.00 am Eucharist service led by Rev George.

Thank you to the people who continue to make sure there are flowers to brighten the church during the summer and we look ahead to September and Creation season.

Hope you also like the planters at the porch entrance and the effort that our gardeners put into providing plants to line the pathway.

In the future we hope to make greater efforts to be more eco conscious in our approach, perhaps thinking about where we source our flowers and the flower arranging materials. We welcome suggestions and are always keen to hear from people who would like the opportunity to arrange flowers in our lovely church building.
