ST Wilfrid’s church at Grappenhall is bringing the community and local businesses together for floral blooming extravaganza, starting tomorrow (Friday Oct 11).
The team at St Wilfrid’s have been a hive of activity over the past few weeks as they prepare to present Grappenhall in Flowers, a unique flower festival to the church. Taking place over four days, the church brings together local businesses, organisations and community groups to transform the stunning church into a floral celebration.
It starts tomorrow, Friday 11th of October at 10am until 7pm, with a violin and piano accompaniment in the evening to welcome visitors, the flower festival is set to wow the local community of Grappenhall and the surrounding villages.
From professional florists from surrounding communities of Lymm, Grappenhall and Stockton Heath to community groups such as the brownies, WI, scouts and local nurseries the church will be brimmed with a range of displays.
Local florists Karl Walsh, 2lips and living colour will be providing displays to wow the locals whilst the church also hosts a floral craft stall for those wishing to try out some floral arrangement skills of their own.
The four day event is raising money for a much needed extension to the church and with admission prices at £2 for adults and children free of charge it’s the perfect way to spend an autumn hour or two.
Anne Young, head of the St Wilfrid’s flower team commented ‘We have been working on this event for months and are overwhelmed with the amount of support we have received from local businesses and community groups, its lovely to see the community spirit in action. There will be some stunning displays so we hope to welcome lots of new and regular faces to the church to see the floral extravaganza.’
The event runs at St Wilfrid’s church from Friday 11th of October 10 am – 7pm (violin and piano evening entertainment from 5pm), Saturday 12th of October 10 am – 8pm, Sunday 13th of October 1pm – 5pm and Monday 14th of October 10am – 4pm. With refreshments available in the church.
