St Andrew’s Church in Soham will be holding its first flower festival for more than 20 years over the bank holiday weekend.

As well as arrangements by the church flower arrangers; local schools, churches and other community groups will be creating displays.

Not all of the flowers will be real - some of the groups have made flowers from paper, wool and even food packaging.

Entry is free - donations welcome - and refreshments will be served on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and all day Monday.

Vicar at St Andrew’s, Tim Alban Jones, said: “A flower festival is a wonderful opportunity for us to express something of the joy and beauty of the created world in the magnificent building which we, perhaps, may take for granted.
