On show were 54 creative and colourful displays from 50 arrangers.

Visitors were able to enjoy refreshments over the whole weekend and there were a wide variety of stalls offering produce and bric-a-brac, as well as a raffle.

Organiser Sue Sturmey said: “It was a very successful event and it was good to see arrangers of all ages, including some men, taking part.

“This our main fund-raiser of the year to help pay for upkeep and maintenance of the historic church and was our most financially successful to date. We are already thinking about next year now.”
