The church looked beautiful on Sunday when I went along to the Flower Festival, the sun was shining and there was a good turn out for the Family Service. It was lovely to hear the hand bell ringing and singing of The Barleycorns during the service too.

The plant stall and refreshments seemed to be doing well, and the Morris Dancers gave their usual entertaining performance.

It was a shame that it rained on and off on the Saturday and Monday but I guess we have to expect rain on an English Bank Holiday weekend!
