Flower Festival

Our Flower Festival is just a few weeks away , from June 29th - July 1st. More than a dozen organisations and individuals are taking part, including contributions from local children's groups and the school. Do come along and join in the weekend's activities, which include a musical opening event on Friday evening, with wine and nibbles and an auction of a picture by Margaret Mountfield.

On Saturday the church will be open, and refreshments served from 10 am to 4 pm. There will be a plant sale starting at 10 am (until the plants are sold!). From 5pm at the school there will be an evening of merriment with a 70's theme, a hog roast, beer tent, stalls etc...
On Sunday we shall have our Patronal Festival Eucharist in the morning, followed by a Parish Lunch in the Vicarage garden and Festival Evensong with music from the choir.

I shall then lie down in a darkened room for about a month...

Do come and join in, if you can make it. I have just heard that Saturday 30th is the day when the council have decided to resurface the only road into Seal from the A25, which might make life interesting! However, it is still possible to get here, either from Kemsing, or by going through Seal and taking the next left. Keep turning left, and you will eventually bring you to the church. Medals will be awarded to anyone who sucessfully negotiates the obstacles!
