A greeting from our new Rector, Michele du Saire
 
The natural beauty and variety of flowers never ceases to amaze.
 
The Flower Festival has been a tradition in the Holy Cross, Sarratt for over 40 years, and this year the diversity of God's creation expressed in the colour, texture and design of flowers and the creativity of human spirit, will celebrate 150 years of London Underground.
The first journey on the Underground took place in January 1863 between Paddington and Farringdon on the Metropolitan Line. 38,000 passengers used the underground that day. Today the underground serves 270 stations and transports over a billion passengers each year.
 
In your travels today, as you enjoy the beauty and the scent of the flowers and the ingenuity of mankind, spare a thought for those who must travel each day in cramped surroundings and unnatural light, and those who found refuge in the underground during the Blitz.
 
But above all, take a moment to give thanks for the wonder of creation – pause and consider the earth that gives sustenance, the rain that waters, the sun that stimulates growth, and enjoy.
 
This will be my first flower festival at Holy Cross, I hope the first of many.
 
God's blessing be on you all.
 
Michele du Saire
Rector, Holy Cross Church
