FLOWER DISTRIBUTION TEAM 2019-20

Another year and another request for more helpers to distribute the Church flowers.  We now number 13 with a small reserve list and would be pleased to welcome any new volunteers to help us in this pleasant task.

You are only needed for approximately one hour every seven weeks.  The flowers can be distributed either on Sunday or Monday, whichever is most convenient.  If you feel you could help please speak to me.  Thank you to all the volunteers for their invaluable help over the past year, it is much appreciated.
