A Festival of Flowers in Celebration of "The Word"

Windsor Methodist Church held this Flower Festival in September 2015, in memory of three much loved stalwarts of the church – Gordon Franklin CVO, Tom Booth and Ruth Williams – who all died from cancer in the space of three months in 2014. All three benefitted from the excellent work of The Thames Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support charities. This celebratory festival raised over £3640 for these charities.
