21st Century Project raises £1,000 for church
Published 28/06/14



A FLOWER arranging workshop and lunch raised £1,000 towards the refurbishment of a church.

Rachel Siegfried, who owns florists Green and Gorgeous in Little Stoke, held the session at the Quince Tree in Stonor.

The money will go to the 21st Century Project, which aims to raise £500,000 for improvements to St Mary’s Church in Station Road, Wargrave.

More than 40 women attended the event, where Miss Siegfried gave a presentation and talk about her work and the different types of flowers she uses in her arrangements.

She then gave a demonstration on how to create a wedding bouquet. The finished bouquet was then raffled and won by Sue Launders.

After the workshop, there was a question and answer session and the visitors were served tea and scones. Miss Siegfried said: “I do like showing off and I had a really good time.

“It’s always nice to give people ideas and inspire them to grow their own flowers as an alternative to buying them.”

The event was organised by Jane Rayner, from Cockpole Green, who said: “I wanted to contribute to the 21st Century Project and had this idea to do something with flowers. I know Rachel well and go to her shop often and she was happy to do it.

“Everyone seemed to love the session — Rachel is an inspiration.”

Miss Siegfried was given a voucher for a meal for two at the Horns pub in Crazies Hill as a thank-you.

The 21st Century Project has so far raised more than £200,000. For more information, visit www.wargravechurch.org.uk
