Summertime, Strawberries and Supporting local families in Walmley and St John’s Church
Walmley residents can celebrate the British summertime in traditional style this weekend, with cream teas and English strawberries at the Annual Garden Party at St John’s Church.
“It’s summertime, it’s Wimbledon Finals Weekend and there’s nothing more British than ‘Strawberries and Cream’ ” said Daniel Ross from Daniel Ross Funerals who are supplying the delicious treats free of charge.
The Walmley based funeral directors on the Eachelhurst Road, Walmley, Sutton Coldfield will also be donating commemorative items to help raise money for St John’s Church. Cash from the sale of the engraved memorials will go towards a holiday for members of the Bereavement and Support Groups at the church.
Jackie Donald is the Bereavement and Support Groups coordinator – “St John’s Church Bereavement and Support Group is delighted to be associated with Daniel Ross Funerals and would like to thank them sincerely for their generosity.”
The memorials are small items that have messages on them such as “In loving memory of Grandma” and can be placed on gravesides as a lasting tribute or in the garden at home in remembrance of a loved one.
“There’s great importance to us, as a local business, to support our local community and we sincerely hope that monies raised by the commemorative items will help to support our local families in need” Daniel who owns the Independent family firm.
St John’s Church Centre Manager, Mr Gordon Ward is hoping many people will attend and support the community: “With the wonderful weather we’ve been having we’re hoping the Garden Party will be a huge success and we’re delighted to be working with Daniel Ross Funerals.
The garden party takes place on Saturday July 3rd at St John’s Church between 11am and 3pm and all are welcome.
