  • Flower Festival 2008

    Comments Off on Flower Festival 2008

    St Peter’s Church, Cregneash, Rushen.

    St Peter’s Church took part in the annual Flower Festival and all the flowers were beautifully displayed. The theme was ‘Hope Springs Eternal’ and it was interesting to see how the different people had interpreted it.

    A model display depicting an aging thatched Manx cottage with a \'For Sale\' sign in the garden, with the caption \"Hoping for planning permission\"The display outside the Church was particularly pertinent to the Village of Cregneash. This showed a Manx cottage in need of repair with the words ‘Hoping for Planning Permission’. It is well nigh impossible to get planning permission for anything other than very minor changes to properties in Cregneash as Manx National Heritage opposes the applications even though it is not a Conservation Area.

    The Flower Festival Service on 6th July was combined with two Baptisms and the Church was full and overflowing.
