Flower Pots
Posted: 19 May 2017

As spring dawned the flower pots outside the cathedral were filled with colourful pansies that have now been replaced by bright red geraniums. These pots, bought with your generosity, have helped to brighten the front of the cathedral and make it more welcoming. Grateful thanks  to James Green who has worked so hard to produce this array of colour as well as the beautiful floral displays we see in the cathedral. James could do with some help with watering and routine weeding etc. If anyone can give a little time please let Canon Richard know.
