Ely Cathedral blooms as it hosts a Jubilee themed flower festival

VISITORS to Ely Cathedral at the weekend were treated to a special Diamond Jubilee themed flower festival.

Organised by members of five local flower clubs, the exhibition featured more than 40 exhibits, with a vast array of blooms on show.

The main theme of the exhibition, staged in the Lady Chapel, was the Queen’s 60 years on the throne, with a new exhibition depicting each decade of her reign.

In the main area of the cathedral, a second exhibition was staged, with the theme being red, white and blue.

Organiser Judy Wynn, a member of Ely and Cambridge Flower Club’s, said: “The exhibition was brilliant, we had comments ranging from breathtaking to magnificent.

“All the exhibitors really enjoyed it and we just love being in the cathedral and doing it so it was a great event all round.”

Members from Littleport, Ely, Burwell, Wisbech and Cambridge Flower Club’s were invited to take part.
