Lots of lilies
Many villagers in Old Buckenham took part in requesting lilies in remembrance of departed relatives or friends at Easter. In total 153 requests were received together with donations for All Saints Church. Several flower arrangements using the 153 lilies were distributed around the church and a leaflet was available after the Easter services giving a record of all the names of those who have been remembered.
A main project in the future is to restore some of the stained glass windows on the south side of the church, some of which goes back to the fifteenth century. The cost is estimated to be in the region of £20,000 so donations received this year will be allocated to this project.
Once this work is completed it is proposed to dedicate one of the windows in memory of the departed.
