A Successful Flower Festival


IMG 0208 rRoyal Ascot  St Ippolyts Flower Festival 28th May 2016

The Whitsun Bank holiday saw an absolutely splendid flower festival at St Ippolyts Church, everyone that came along agreed that it was superb and well worth the visit. Our 2016 St Ippolyts Church Flower Festival was based on the theme of a ‘Grand Day Out ‘ and there were displays depicting such events as a visit to the theatre, a day out at Royal Ascot, a day out at the test match and one display even depicted a trip to the moon! Now that would be a really Grand Day Out! Whatever the subject every floral display was truly wonderful and the variety added spark to the event.

The weather was kind to us even though Sunday and Monday mornings were a bit chilly. Nonetheless what with entrance takings, sales of teas and cakes, a grand raffle (won by Alison Dines!), sales of plants and books, and generous donations the church benefited from a grand total of £2460. Thank you to everyone who turned up to support us and to make all the hard work so worthwhile.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered to help out over the weekend by manning stalls, baking cakes, erecting marquees, mowing and strimming the churchyard etc., but most of all we must thank all the ladies who not only made the lovely floral arrangements but generously provided their own flowers.  There must, however, be very special mention of all the work carried out by Mary Hooper who not only masterminded and managed the whole event, but also found the time to create at least seven of the wonderful arrangements.
