I am not ready for this, but if I don't get a move on Christmas will come and go and I will not be ready.

We have deecided to do the same as last year, just green and white foliage with red or white candles. It worked really well last year, with lots of compliments on our

arrangements. We can use any foliage but Holly and Ivy would be really good (a little red with the berries would be very seasonal). If you would like to give red or white candles in memory of a loved one that would be a personal gesture which we could incorporate.

We will be decorating the church on Saturday 16 December, in the morning but any time to fit in with everything else that needs doing at this time of year. This will then be in place for the Carol Service on Sunday 17 December.

If you wouldlike to join the team of flower people, please just give me a ring. I shall be in contact with the regular people in due course.

The new rota fo the Flowers in the Pedestal on Sundays wilb be on the notice board on the left in the Church porch. Again, new faces are welcome. No special skills required. There is a small flower fund to help with the cost of the flowers. As usual we are most grateful to the ladies who give their time etc. to provide flowers on a weekly/fortnightly basis.
