ST CHAD’S CATHEDRAL ASSOCIATION
FLOWER FESTIVAL 14, 15 AND 16 JUNE 2019
Come and join us for the 2019 Flower Festival and help us make this an even more spectacular event than ever. We hope you will put the dates in your diary straight away. We are keen to encourage people of all faiths to join us to make this a truly ecumenical event. The set up day will be Thursday 13 June from 9.30 am until late. The judging will take place on Friday morning. Prizes will be presented on Sunday evening during our concert interval.
The theme is ‘In the Footsteps of Our Lord’ for all three categories: parishes, convents and flower clubs, primary schools and secondary schools. This is a very wide theme and may be approached in whatever way you wish. The disciples followed Our Lord’s footsteps. St Paul and many other saints followed the path Our Lord had led. Think of the lovely Poem ‘Footprints’.
Early in January we sent out a letter asking people to let us know if they were interested in taking part. We have arranged a coffee morning on April 10 at 9.30 am, at the Cathedral, for all those who have expressed an interest in joining us to explain in detail the arrangements and give them an opportunity to pick their location in the Cathedral so that they can develop their ideas in detail.
Do please come and join us to make the 2019 Flower Festival the best ever. You will be made very welcome and make many new friends. If you know any flower arrangers who might like to join us please ask them to contact me.
