Recycling the flowers

The story of the Flower Festival draws to a close today as the displays are dismantled and the flowers removed. We're recycling the flowers - so to speak - in a few ways: some have been retained to decorate the Cathedral; some have been donated to other places; some are available on the lawn outside the Cathedral - these may be taken by anyone willing to make a donation for them.

All in all it has been a wonderful, memorable and successful event, with many positive comments from the large number of visitors. A word of thanks is due to all who helped design and arrange the displays, and to the army of parishioners who acted as stewards and welcomers or helped provide refreshments for the people who came. Although we haven't been able to show every display on the blog, we have retained a large number of photographs which we plan to publish in the future.
