St Teath’s bi-annual flower festival coincided with St Teath Carnival Week, the last weekend in July. The theme was “New Beginnings”, giving plenty of opportunity for imaginative and varied displays. Along with several Action Men and partners adorned with suitable fig leaves appeared babies and their paraphernalia, clocks celebrating new year and even some bees with their honey! Particular thanks again to Elaine from Bruallen for an amazing altar display, accompanied by some wonderful wedding photos and bridal gowns. Musical entertainment was supplied by Gareth Stubberfield, James Westerby and the St Teath Choir singing some of its all-time hits. The hall hosted light refreshments and a range of scrummy cakes.
The weekend concluded with a Songs of Praise led by lay-reader Claire Salzmann and the ever-hearty St Teath Church Choir, before retreating to the Hall to finish off the cakes. A particular thanks to Yvonne who has organised many flower festivals, although feels this must be her last. Long-serving supporters including Lorraine and David have done much to make sure this year was a success. We’re grateful for donations of £900 which will be used to help ensure St Teath church is supporting its local community in every new beginning.
