Spnosor our Flower Festival in June 2013



Preparations for our Flower Festival from June 21-23 are continuing apace. The purpose is to create a beautiful and memorable occasion which will attract more people to St Hildeburgh's and will also raise money for church funds.
        To make the most of the festival’s financial potential we are inviting selected local firms and organisations to sponsor one of the many exhibits for amounts ranging from less than £50 to £100. In return, the sponsor will be named on the exhibit and in the festival programme.
