The three-day flower festival at Minsteracres in July was a huge success.
“it was a great way of bringing people to Minsteracres who wouldn’t normally come,” said Frances McGhee, who led the Minsteracres flower team. ”There was a terrific atmosphere about the place, and our team worked well with the South of Tyne Flower Club throughout.”
“We were stunned by the £1,380 we took on the raffle and the catering was terrific,” says Frances, “The café took £1,500 over the three days.
“Parish and retreat centre volunteers were out in force, and our thanks go to them for their help and hard work.”
