Floral cascade for King Charles III Coronation

by | 16 June 2023 | Community facility, Retford

Central to Rampton’s Coronation celebration weekend was a rainbow floral cascade flowing from All Saints Church tower, shining a light on a new era for our new King. More than 2,500 woollen colourful flowers were made and sewn on to the netting.

The cascade was the focal part of the village celebrations and will be used for church restoration fundraising. On Sunday 7th May there was a service of Thanksgiving followed by a village picnic, children’s activities, and the opportunity to take a selfie with the cascade as a colourful backdrop.

Lynette Dear, who has led on the project, said: “The cascade looks fabulous and we hope that people from far and wide will take the opportunity of seeing this community artwork.”

All Saints Church is ‘at risk’ and the community continues to fundraise to maintain the building. Donations when visiting the floral cascade will go towards repairing the west church window. The plan is for the cascade to stay in place until the end of the year.

Supporters can donate locally or via www.givealittle.co/campaigns/a3bca6ae-d152-478b-aaf5-aec19aac34e5.
