Villagers pulled together to make the annual flower festival at StGerman’s Parish Church a blooming success.

The event was held on Saturday and Sunday and featured more than 20 displays.

It was a fundraiser for the £40,000 project to provide a new toilet at the church and netted £730. Churchwarden Mrs Addy Alexander said: “It was very good. We were particularly busy on Saturday.

“The theme of the festival was ‘The Seasons’. Everybody comes together and all the village groups contribute.

“Visitors said they enjoyed the colours, the sheer amount of flowers and the general very happy atmosphere.”

The church was open to visitors over the weekend and a joint service with the neighbouring benefices of Terrington St John, Tilney All Saints, Tilney St Lawrence and Magdalen was well attended on Sunday.
