The recent Flower, Craft and Music Festival held at St James’ Church, Kingston was a great success. It started on Friday night with a concert featuring The Military Wives’ Choir from Bovington, Woodwind Trio Zephyrae and the solioist Rosie Horn. All were a pleasure to listen to, so talented, and the impromptu rendition of Panis Angelicus from Rosie Horn with the woodwind trio was delightful.
The Flower and Craft Festival was on Saturday and Sunday and was much enjoyed by all who attended. The church looked wonderful with all the flower arrangements and crafts. There was also music at times during the weekend from Zephyhrae, Roderick Raley on the organ with Felicity Smith on the violin, The Swanage Recorder Group and proceedings were brought to a close by Harmony Rocks Choir on Sunday afternoon. Many thanks to all the performers and also to Claire who is musical director of both The Military Wives and Harmony Rocks.
We would like to thank everyone who helped to make the event a success – the musicians, the flower arrangers and the people who displayed and demonstrated their crafts, the stallholders and the ladies who made cakes and everyone who helped with the refreshments, the setting up and the clearing up afterwards. We would also like to thank Albury and Hall Estate Agents for sponsoring and erecting advertising signs and James Smiths Funeral Directors for sponsoring the programmes. I hope we have remembered to thank everyone for giving up their time to help. We could not have run the event without you all.
