Easter lilies in Old Buckenham

Remembering with lilies
At Easter it is now a tradition at All Saints, Old Buckenham, to decorate the church with many, many lilies. Each one is in memory of someone no longer with us, perhaps a parent, a husband, a wife or a dear friend. A small donation is paid towards each lily flower and much time and effort is put into producing arrangements throughout the church.
After the Easter Sunday service, people are invited to come to see the flower arrangements. In the afternoon this year there was also handbell ringing as well as refreshments.
This series of photographs aims to show how boxes of lilies were transformed into arrangements for all to see. The church is open every day so why not pop in and have a look for yourself? Little booklets are available that list all the people being remembered by the flowers.
