Pew ends were decorated for the occasion of a wedding by various Church
members and a rota of friends of the Church acted as door stewards over the
weekend. At 9.30am on the Sunday, Morning Prayer was led by Rev Richard
Ward-Smith. Bible readings were given by Ruth Heighton-Jackson and John
Cleave and the offertory was taken up by Shorne Tilbey. Thanks are given to
all those who contributed to the event in any way, particularly
Church-warden Margaret Inch for co-ordinating the Flower Festival and to all
the gifted flower arrangers for providing such stunning displays. Proceeds
amounting to over £600 were for Parish Church funds.
