Churches working together for flowers

THE churches of Delaval Parish have joined forces to put on a flower festival this month.

The Church of Our Lady in Seaton Delaval, St Paul’s in Seaton Sluice and St Michael’s in New Hartley. are working together to put on a flower festival over the weekend of June 17-19 in the churches from 11am to 4pm.

Arrangements are being prepared by members of the parish, surrounding churches and the local college to be displayed across the three venues.

As part of the festival, the Inspiration Choir, a singing group based in Newcastle, will be performing at St Pauls on Friday, June 17, at 7.30pm.

Tickets for the event are priced at £5 and are available by calling Jean on (0191) 237 3786.

The church is aiming to raise funds to help in a variety of projects, including much needed structural work to the 900-year-old Church of Our Lady, located on the site of Seaton Delaval Hall, recently re-opened as a National Trust venue.
