Flower Festival 26th/27th and 28th June 2015

FAMOUS PEOPLE

 

The date is drawing very close now just over a month away, and organisation is well under way for most of the Flower Exhibits.  As we discuss the arrangements and talk about which flowers and colours we are using it feels very exciting. We look forward to seeing the church so busy and packed with people and the fellowship that abounds throughout the weekend.

Do you have a favourite person that you would like to sponsor or donate towards? Some have already been sponsored, however the cost of flowers is always more than the £50 suggested so we are happy to have more than one person sponsoring an arrangement.   We really appreciate the support that you the parishioners give us in this, so I have listed below the names of the people that will be depicted and interpreted in flowers and subject matter:

 

Mary the Mother of Jesus                    

Nelson Mandela                                          

Mother Teresa                                             

Mary Sumner                                                

Francis Drake                                                                                                

Emily Pankhurst                                          

Florence Nightingale               

Torvil & Dean

Edith Holden                                                 

Beatrix Potter

Winston Churchill                                      

Andrew Lloyd Webber

Queen Elizabeth II                                      

Mary Berry

William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens (1 x arrangement)

Sports Personalities (Louis Smith, Charlotte Edwards, Sir Chris Hoy)   (1 x arrangement)      

St Anselm                                                        

St Neot              

Scot of the Antarctic

Neil Armstrong

Elvis Presley

Sue Ryder

Jaques Cousteau

William Willberforce 

 

That makes 22 large arrangements, plus the Saints and other arrangements to be done.

The money raised will go towards the Church with 10% going to our chosen charity, which on this occasion is St John’s Hospice, Moggerhanger.  If you would like to help in any way, please contact Rosemary or Sylvia the Joint Festival Organisers on 01480 476334 or rosemarydarrington@stneots.org
