Message from Cathy about her greetings cards, helping to raise money for the Friends of St Marys

Last year, during the first lockdown, I took my camera with me on my daily walk around the village and collected a series of images of Long Crendon. I was also asked to take photographs of the Open Gardens as part of a project for The National Garden Scheme to help the NGS continue fund-raising during financially challenging times.

It occurred to me that I could produce a set of hand made greetings cards using some of the images, particularly since work opportunities were uncertain, and so Flashcat Cards was born!

There are a couple of images in the range featuring St Mary’s Church – one of the church itself and another of the wonderful church door. The cards are £2.50 each or 4 for £8.00 and for each card sold featuring the church I will be making a donation to the Friends of St Mary’s. The cards are left blank for your own message and individually wrapped in a biodegradable sleeve. I have placed examples in the lobby at St Mary’s Church.

If you would like to purchase any cards please drop me a note at
