St gregory



It's more than 100 years since the 8 bells at St Gregory's Church had a professional overhaul. In the interim, Suffolk Guild members worked on the bells, and put the 7th and the tenor on ball bearings, these fittings are now wearing badly, along with the fittings on the other 6 bells and all are becoming difficult to ring. The parishioners are always pleased to hear the bells ring for Sunday Services, and so the bell ringers are keen to have the bells overhauled without causing financial problems for the parish.

Gerald Bird from Little Cornard does an annual plant sale to raise funds for the church. This year he has very kindly offered St Gregory's bells a donation from the sales. For a copy of the  plants and the prices please click here.

Church Flowers at St. Gregory's

I feel very privileged in heading up a team of such talented and supportive flower arrangers at St Gregory's.    The number of people involved has increased over the last twelve months which means that at Festival times we are able to decorate even more of this lovely building.  The wonderful facilities which we now have in the tower make the work that we do so much easier. There are so many people who visit the church and we hope that the flowers which are regularly in the church and in the porch help to make them feel welcome, as well as give pleasure to the congregation.

I should add at this point that we wouldn't be able to do what we do if it wasn't for the generosity of so many of the congregation who donate money towards the cost of the flowers, both for the festivals and throughout the year. The Team is extremely grateful for those donations as we rely on them completely to achieve the results that we do. In the past year there were quite a few weddings and the flowers for these have been enjoyed by many.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who help, in whatever way, to make the church look so lovely and to earn The Team so many compliments.

Remember if you would like to help with the arranging at St. Gregory's do contact me or speak to one of The Team.

Please let me know as soon as possible of unavailability or if you need to swap.
