All Saints Flower Club
Floral displays are an important part of life at All Saints' and the flower arrangers at All Saints' are a team of amateur volunteers who enjoy flower arranging and are responsible for all flowers in Church. They provide arrangements to enhance the weekly services and do special arrangements at Festivals such as Easter, Harvest Festival and Christmas. Flowers are also arranged for occasional events such the Civic Service, various concerts and Remembrance Day.
Colours and flowers are often specifically chosen to try to reflect the sentiment of the occasion; lilies at Easter, rich yellow and gold at Harvest, rosemary and poppies for Remembrance. Specific arrangements and colour schemes are available for weddings and the teams enjoy making the Church look special for the wedding couples.
The volunteers tend to work in teams, with a leader. Each team has responsibility for all the flowers within a calendar month, but we are flexible and all the teams work together, especially for major occasions.
The Flower Club tries to be self-funding, getting its income from fundraising, weddings, and donations. We are always happy to receive donations especially at festival times when the cost of flowers is always more. At Easter we accept donations in memory of loved ones for the Lilies that are placed on the Altar and in other arrangements, and information about this will be in the magazine during Lent.
We are happy to arrange flowers for you in memory of a loved one or to mark a special occasion for a donation. These may be on the Memorial Book in the Memorial Chapel or on the Altar, and of course floral arrangements for special services such as weddings can also be arranged. There is a list at the back of the church for people to sign if you would like memorial flowers for a specific date, or just speak to the Flower Club Administrator.
The club is open to anyone interested in flower arranging and new members are always very welcome. No formal training or experience is required - just an interest in flowers and a wish to join in, enjoy yourself, and learn about what we do! We all arrange flowers in our own specific way and everyone is an individual. Guidance can be given to beginners on the basics of flower arranging, so whether you are experienced or would like to try something new, you will be made most welcome.
