Flower of the Holy Night

Our flower this month is Poinsettia, also known as Flower of the Holy Night. A plant native to Central America, it is thought to be symbolic of the star of Bethlehem, with its vibrant red leaves symbolising the blood of Christ. The actual flowers are the yellow buds at the centre. Whilst red is the most common variety, they are available in pink, white and yellow. They are also known as the “lobster flower,” or by the fiery name “Mexican Flame Leaf.”


Our install for the Swindon Marriott this week saw the return of the novelty animals. This year, a family of handmade reindeer made by a very talented local gentleman. Rudolph, Rosemary and Ralph are looking after the tree and are now hopefully house trained. One problem: the leisure club feel left out and have asked for their own so Paloma Penguin will be winging her way to them next week!!!


After several months of hard work we are pleased to announce the arrival of our very much awaited Funeral Brochure. Many thanks to everyone that made this happen: Paragon Print, Lee Hiom and Duncan Clark.

The challenge this month was to provide a tribute of LEGO. Very pleased with the end result, but it was not the easiest thing to do. Once again Val Spicer Designs worked their magic and provided a superb base.

Finally, we’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy And Healthy New Year.
