Festival of Flowers

The 31st annual Festival of Flowers will be held over the
Bank Holiday weekend May 25th – 27th 2019

The Festival was nominated for the Observer 1066 Community Awards in October 2016 and we were delighted to win the class linked to the Best Community Event. A lovely glass trophy was awarded to our church and will be on display at the Festival.

Firstly a huge thank you to everyone who helped in anyway during the flower festival weekend. What a team!

It is always useful to have peoples comments who visit our Church and over the Flower Festival weekend many filled in the evaluation forms.  The main thing that people would like is more cakes on the cake stall.

Some of the comments received are below:

In addition there was the income from the lunches and the teas/coffees and cream teas as well as donations in the jars. After expenses the total income was over £3,000 and grateful thanks to the members of the Ladies Supper Club and all who helped in any way at all. It was a great weekend – praise the Lord!
