It’s an age-old saying that no winter lasts forever and that no spring will skip its turn. Spring indeed made its first sign of arrival at St John’s Winchester over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, through a flower arranging workshop organised by Desiree Cook, the wife of our Director Clive.
While the weekend’s unseasonable weather left a lot to be desired, the Chapel of St John the Baptist was positively spring-like thanks to an array of beautiful flowers inside its doors. Residents spent an enjoyable morning crafting colourful displays and arranging blooms of various sunny shades to greet – or, perhaps more appropriately given the drizzle, coax! – springtime to Winchester.
The floral displays highlighted the vibrant community of St John’s Winchester by showcasing some of the creative flair and talent of its residents. After the day’s events, one of the residents, Betty, provided much welcomed tea and coffee to keep their green fingers warm.
The residents and Chaplain would like to offer a huge thank you to Desiree for arranging the event. A pleasant and rosy morning was had by all!
