Mold Flower Festival ‘Remembrance 1914 – 2014’
25/06/2014 10:00am - 29/06/2014 5:00pm
St David’s RC Church
St David’s Lane
Excitement is starting to build and preparations are well underway for Mold’s second Flower Festival.
The Festival will be held in St David’s Catholic Church, Mold from 25th- 29th June 2014. The church will be filled with beautiful flower arrangements – each depicting a range of key events and memorable moments through the decades since the Great War.
Individual arrangements will pay tribute to, for example – the unknown soldier, the first woman to fly solo, the rise of the Beatles, the Jarrow Hunger March, the NHS, the first man on the moon and the birth of Prince George – to name but a few!
St David’s recently hosted a sell-out wine tasting event, with cheese and home-made bread to help raise funds for the Festival. Local school children are already planning their floral contributions to the Festival – growing a plant, arranging small bunches of flowers, making poppies or crafting white paper doves for a prayer tree. These will all be used to mark out a pathway into the church.
Many local businesses are also providing support by creating their own floral window display in their premises or sponsoring flowers to be arranged for them – creating a trail of floral art throughout Mold town centre.
The Festival is a community event that is organised through Mold Flower Club. Kathy Flint, Chair of Mold Flower Club and the Mold Festival Committee said ‘We are indebted to all those volunteers who have come forward from Mold and the surrounding villages, to help us arrange the event again this year. Their input has been truly inspirational and I’m sure that visitors to the Festival will have a wonderful time and enjoy Mold’s way of celebrating the decades that have passed since the end of the Great War’.
She added ‘There are still opportunities for people and organisations in the area to get involved with the Festival – be that through sponsorship, placing a flower arrangement in their window, or even offering a donation of goods or materials that can be used to help organise the Festival, such as items for refreshment, flowers, containers or plants. All support would be greatly appreciated and acknowledged in the Festival programme.’
Opening times: Wed/Thur/Fri – 10am to 7pm, Sat – 10am to 5pm, Sun – 11.30am to 5pm
