    St Andrews Church, Falkirk

     

    Our driver & mate visited this fantastic church two or three times before this final delivery. They are now on first name terms with the chief minister! (Alastair).

    Everybody is so pleased with the project, with the new carpet just fitted, our gang got there and fitted some

    of our most challenging cushions to great effect and the full, (& humbling) gratitude of all the Falkirk congregation.

    We pulled out all stops to complete the job for Christmas. All in all a complete success!  The fabric used matched perfectly,

    it is one from our major supplier, Plumbs, Cardinal Wine with piping. You must agree that it looks superb........

     

    Sunday 8th December 2013

     

    St Nicholas, Peopleton, Pershore, Worcs.

     

    The driver got there in the nick of time and put all the cushions in place before the Christingle Service. We heard from the church that everybody was very happy with the new found comfort.

    They chose our Elegent Mini Claret.

     

    Thursday 28th November 2013

     

    St Andrews Church, Falkirk

     

     

    Our first delivery of a huge order. We were asked to complete the downstairs of the church in time for a very special Communion service. We heard that everyone was happy

    with the quality of the cushions. We are returning with the balence of the order (the upstairs) before Christmas.

     

    Friday 25th October 2013

     

    St Cross, Wilstone, Tring. Herts

     

    This church was built on the site of a previous church, in 1877.

    They chose our fabulous Abbey Red fabric for their pews and matching kneelers.

    Again as in a delivery of the previous day, our driver & mate put everything in place without needing to bother anybody.

    On 30th October, a parishioner rang us to say just how pleased everybody in the congregation were with the cushions!

     

    Friday 25th October 2013

     

    All Saints, Warlingham, Surrey

     

     

    This church is over 750 yrs old. They chose our Diamond Beige PP fabric and the comments were that it was bright and enhanced the lovely old church.

    The fantastic wall painting had been painted over in medieval times!

     

    Thursday 24th October 2013

     

    St Lawrence, Stratford Sub Castle, Wiltshire.  A Grade 1 listed building.

     

    This church chose a very attractive Navy fabric. Every pew bench was individually made and all the end curves were different.

    On  28th October we received the email below!

    Dear Safefoam

    I am absolutely delighted with all our cushions. They all fit perfectly and everyone that were in church yesterday were equally delighted.

    Our vicar, Tessa started her sermon on yesterday ...'Are we all sitting comfortably?'

    Thank you so much for your excellent service in all aspects of bringing this project to a very succesful end.

    When I first contaced you back in May I was hopeful that we would be able to have the cushions in time for Christmas.

    We were able to raise the funds very quickly (started off by a bequest) and then your quick response once you received our order,

    here we are and not the end of October yet.

    All the very best to you both and in particular to those who made the cushions to such a high standard.

     

    H.B. (Mrs)

     

    Thursday 24th October 2013

     

    St Mary the Virgin, Charminster

     

    This church chose our very attractive Cardinal Rouge fabric, it goes so well in the church and looks the part.

    The church was open when the driver arrived and all was put in place without bothering anybody!

    On 30th October we received an email:-----

    Dear Safefoam

    I have received your invoice today and will pass it to the vicar tomorrow .  We will draw the cheque and get it off to you asap.

    By the way, the cushions look fantastic and really lift the church. 

    Sorry I couldn't be there to receive your people but hope they made it without too much difficulty.

    Many thanks for all your help.  Do look us up if you're ever in this neck of the woods.

    Kind regards

    BT pp St Mary's Charminster PCC

     

    Thursday 3rd October 2013

     

    Llanegryn Church, Gwynedd, Cymru

     

    This pretty 13th Century Church is in a beautiful rural part of Wales. They chose our particularly suitable Hopsack Bark fabric.

    The new pew cushions were admired by all who were there to greet our driver and mate.

    The screen is very striking and the church should be visited if you are in the area. Google will guide you there.

     

    Thursday 8th August 2013

     

    St Mary's Church, Overton, Basingstoke, Hampshire.

     

    St Mary's Church was our last delivery of a long day. The Communion Rail was recently re-designed and we were honoured to be chosen to produce this challenging product.

    Thanks to some excellent paper patterns by the project manager,

    we were able to produce this quality kneeler.

    Everybody was delighted with the final results and our two drivers were sent off home feeling

    pleased with the endeavours of the day behind them. They were hoping for a rewarding bonus. Some hopes!

     

    St Margaret's Church , Ifield, Gravesend, Kent.

     

     

    St Margaret's Church, Ifield, Gravesend. A rural setting for this delightful Chapel. Our Terra Cotta Gold looks the part.

     

     

    Burnt Ash Methodist Church , Burnt Ash Hill, Lee, London

     

    Burnt Ash Methodist Church is right on the main road and ought to be visited to see how lovely it is.

    Our Elegent Mini Claret fabric looks so well in the church. Comfort is coming! Sorry it's arrived..................

     

    Thursday 1th July 2013

     

    Church of St Michael, Aynho, Banbury, Northants

     

    2nd Delivery

     

    St Michaels Church is prominent in the village, and easy to find. The driver needed something he could cope with after his previous mistakes! 

    He said it was a great pleasure to put out the cushions in such a lovely church.

    Two pictures above are of special interest. The ancient wheeled bier and the ancient chest.

     

    Church of St Paul, Horn Hill, Chalfont St Peter, Bucks

     

     

    1st Deivery

    This was a Driver Error delivery! Speeding down to the Chalfonts, he realised eventually that he knew not where was the church!

    The lady responsible was away until weekend. This tested his logistical skills to their somewhat low limit.

    He was helped out of his self made predicament by the office staff at the church of St Peter, in Chalfont St Peter.

    They allowed him to deliver to their church (there they are on the back pew), until things could be sorted.

    Much gratitude was forrthcoming from him. (& us). St Peter's is a large church. St Pauls is a pretty Victorian chapel seen in the pictures.

    Tuesday 25th June 2013

    Church of the Holy Cross, Uckfield, East Sussex

     

    This was our 3rd delivery to Holy Cross. Church now complete. Many thanks for all the orders!

    Thursday 20th June 2013

    The Free Church of Scotland, Lochs, Isle of Lewis

     

    This is our furthest ever delivery! The driver and his assistant had a wonderful trip.

    The church is being painted so the pew cushions were stored upstairs & we await picures from them.

    Above you can see the lovely church taken from above. The Dove of Peace overlooks the congregation and there is a close up of it.

    Finally the ladies of the parish made lots of the beautiful flower table displays.

     

    Wednesday 19th June

    Auchaber United Church, Forgue, Aberdeenshire

     

    We delivered to this very rural church, a little treasure in the beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside.

    We had a letter from the church "Your cheque is on the way.

    The cushions are lovely and fit in with the church decor perfectly. All are delighted. A job well done.

    Kind regards,

    Diane,

    Church Elder.

     

    Wednesday 29th May

    St Dogfan's Church, Llanrhaeadr ym Mochant

     

    We dropped these cushions at the Presbytery so were unable to photograph in place. I think we'll get pictures later.

     

    Thursday 16th May

    St Andrew's Church, Cuffley, Hertfordshire.

    This relatively modern church (built in 1965) is full of beautiful fused glass windows.

    Our driver fancies his ability with our camera! He decided to go to town.......

    The Baptismal Font is so different from the stone one of yesterday, and the sculpture behind the altar demands attention.

    We delivered 52 cushions in our turquoise top quality fabric to blend in with the modern glass.

    Within an hour of the delivery a church warden rang to say how well the cushions looked and offered thanks for a well timed delivery.

     

    Wednesday 15th May 2013

     

    The Church of the Holy Angels, Lilliput, Poole, Dorset.

     

     

    Our third delivery of the day. This more modern church at Lilliput had ordered from us previously,

    and this navy fabric with piping fits the bill very well. The screen is painted and is rather special,

    it was added in 1906.

    All at Safefoam thank the church for coming back to us for further cushions.

    There are still a good few cushions needed here, so we keep our fingers crossed!

    20th May. We heard by phone from the church that members of the congregation are very pleased with the comfy new cushions.

    They were also impressed by our helpful delivery men! (We certainly won't be telling them that!).

    2nd July   More words of praise from the treasurer! We are delighted with the pew cushions for our Lady Chapel. ..............

    Thank you very much for your excellent service. (along with a payment cheque).

     

    All Saints, East Pennard, Shepton Mallet, Somerset.

    This small village in the Mendips area of Somerset, has such an old beautiful church.

    Here they chose our Henley Claret fabric. This is a quality cushion with piping and suited the church very well.

    This was the second delivery of the day at around lunchtime.

     

     

    St Etheldreda , West Quantoxhead, Taunton, Somerset.

     

     

    Our driver and mate were up early to deliver to St Etheldreda around 10.30am. Like the Manchester church below this

    Somerset church decided on two different fabrics,

    The Sawtooth Terracotta for the main body of the church and our very own Hoghton Blue for the choir.

    Neither of the covers have piping,

    but both suit the pews very well.

     

    Tuesday 30th April

    All Saints Church, Stand, Whitefield, Manchester

     

     

    We were pleased to manufacture this, one of our bigger orders. This magnificent church was built to celebrate the victory of the

    Battle of Waterloo and it was also suggested at the time to be a way of

    pacifying the participants in the Peterloo Riots of 1819. The cushions were paid for by a bequest from a member of the congregation.

    We were asked to embroider some of

    the cushions to honour the lady. The church has distinct areas, so the Lady Chapel and the choir were fitted with different fabrics.

    The overall effect is pleasing.

    Within an hour of the delivery a church warden rang to say how well the cushions looked and offered thanks for a well timed delivery.

    20th May An amazingly flattering letter from the PCC secretary. It makes us all blush too much to copy it here! here's some of it................

    People have commented excitedly on the shaping of of the cushion ends to match the shape at the ends of the pews

    and the fact that the cushions are reversible, the contrasting piping (serendipity!).........................and not one unfavourable comment has been made--that is almost unheard of! The final touch--

    the embroidered dedication of the McVicar bequest on random

    cushions has been quite a talking point--people go round spotting them! So thank you very much for that as well. Altogether the feeling is that the church is now a much more presentable

    place in which to welcome newcomers and certainly we are all enjoying

    sitting in comfort.

     

    Wednesday 27th March

    St Ffraid Church, Llansantffraid, Powys

     

    Everyone at Safefoam is delighted to complete this order for the whole of the Llanstffraid church.

    Rev Pam & Rev Mike Powell have a number of churches to look after, and we've done some work at most of them!

    Our driver now knows the route without his Satnav..........

    We needed to complete the work for special dedication services connected with all of the recent renovations to St Ffraid's,

    the worry was the abundant snow. Rev Pam told us that the Easter donkey

    had to be cancelled due to the weather!  The picture above of the gravestones is interesting, during the renovations these stones

    were found under some older carpetting, some dating back to 1775. The fabric for the pews is fairly new and looks so good,

    & it will look even better when the new carpet arrives.

     

    Wednesday 27th March

    St Giles Church, Tattenhoe, Bucks

     

    These Lady Blue pew cushions were delivered by courier, so we await some pictures from the church.

     

    Monday 18th March

    St James Church, Brindle, Chorley, Lancs

     

    We were lucky to be chosen to fit out this whole church with pew cushions and kneelers.

    Everyone said how good the new cushions looked. This particular fabric is 100% wool. Very durable and easy to clean.

    This beautiful church is within a couple of miles of our office. No long journey then for our driver.

    Good news for us because he won't be getting any food allowances or overnight expenses!

    We got a lovely card from the chuch warden..................

    The pew cushions are now in place and looking quite splendid.

    A very big thank you for the quality of goods and the very efficient and pleasant manner you dealt with our enquiries and order.

    Our new "Wesminster Abbey" look was much admired by the congregation at our

    Palm Sunday service, during which David Ward dedicated the new cushions.

    Many mant thanks,

    A.Pearson.

     

     

    Wednesday 13th March

    Holy Trinity Church, Dawley, Telford

    Final Delivery of the day

     

    This lovely church is recovring from a severe arson attack by vandals. Much of one corner of the church was damaged.

    The whole of the church was smoke damaged. We wish them luck with the new cushions,

    they will help to bring comfort where there has been pain.

     

    St Mary the Virgin Church, Beltinge, Herne Bay

    First Delivery of the day

     

    After an overnight stay in Canterbury, our driver and mate were in Reculver outside Herne Bay for their first delivey of the day.

    The new cushions and kneelers were for the whole church, and were

    much appreciated by the church warden, as you can see from the email below, received on the same day as the delivery.

    The lovely sketch of the church, seen above is available for purchase by the rear door.

    "I have just returned from the church and was delighted to find all the new cushions in place. How smart they look!

    I had a quick sit but look forward to trying them out properly on Sunday.

    Thank you for your excellent service, I didn't even need to be there.

    The man/men left everything neat and tidy and called me later to let me know it had been done.

    Will have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

    Kind Regards"

    Another church that we are pleased to have supplied pew cushions to previously. Here they have chosen one of our current fabrics,

    Tueday 4th February

     

    FP Church Stornoway, Isle of Lewis

     

     

    We relied on DR Macleod to deliver this precious cargo all the way to Stornoway. A huge container wagon picked up here in

    Preston and avoiding terrible storms duly delivered to Stornoway for us. We are most grateful to one of the congregation of the church for these lovely pictures.

    We also got a message All reports so far are that they are very comfortable and that the congregation are very pleased with them.
