Beaulieu Abbey Church Flowers

Planning the Flower Festival

 

How we are planning the Flower Festival….

  1. Choose the date : September 15th - 17th 2017

  2. Choose the venue : Beaulieu Abbey Church

  3. Choose a theme : The hymn “For the Beauty of the Earth”,  asking the arrangers to pick a line which is appropriate to their organisation.

  4. Invite clubs and organisations based in and around Beaulieu if they would like to contribute.  In our active village we have over 20 clubs and organisations,  ranging through Cricket Club, Camera Club, Warblers, School,  Sailing Club and the Estate.

    The response was hugely encouraging with everyone keen to support this community event.  The church will be full of flowers.

  5. Entry will be free but we will ask for donations towards the upkeep of this Grade 1 listed building.

  6. During the three days we will be offering Refreshments in the Abbey Church Hall and there will be some Musical Interludes.

  7. The festival will close with a Choral Evensong on the Sunday at 5.30pm to which we have invited couple who have been married in the church since Father John joined us.

  8. Now all we need is offers of help to Steward, Prepare Food, Bake cakes and Wash Up!!
