Floral beauty draws a good crowd!
Inspired by Rebecca Newell, the Good Shepherd Church florist, a Flower Demonstration took place on Saturday 17 November in the parish hall. Over 100 tickets were sold for the event which included a raffle ticket and light refreshments with hot drinks. Rebecca delivered a relaxed but very professional and informative demonstration of four displays, a large table Advent Candle wreath and a light up door wreath. All items drew huge compliments from the attentive audience, as Rebecca shared some tricks of the trade and made it all look so easy! The afternoon was enhanced with festive nibbles, Christmas mince pies, stolen, sandwiches and delicious homemade cakes and biscuits. What did come to light is not only our flower ladies wonderful flower arrangers, they can also bake! With great support from parishioners and friends a total of £660 was raised towards our parish Christmas Flowers. A special thanks to Catie Vessey who played the piano for us. All the beautiful arrangements were raffled off and some very fortunate ladies went home very happy indeed!
