This year's Flower Festival was entitled "Talents: Then and Now" and was based on jobs that are mentioned in the Bible.

We raised £2,412 and this was sent to The Eldwick Church for their New Building Fund.

The home-cooked meals that Michael and his team served over the weekend were meat and potato pie on the Saturday and corn beef slab on Monday.  Our minister, Rev David McAloon, led worship on the Sunday which also included a Songs of Praise service at 4.30 pm. 

As well as the flowers, upstairs the Wednesday Art Group put on a display of their works, and in the other room there was an "alternative view" on Talents: Then and Now.
