Colourful creations took centre stage in an historic church as a fund-raising flower festival was hailed a success.

With 12 displays showcased at St Margaret's Church in Reydon over the weekend, the festival had the theme of the hymn 'All Things bright and Beautiful'.

Among the displays were the recreation of 'The ripe fruits in the Garden' and 'The tall trees in the greenwood, the meadows where we play.'

Church visitors were impressed with the 'lovely displays,' with organisers praising the efforts of 'some very talented and creative people.'

Pat Hendrickson, churchwarden, said that the weekend was a success – as £760 was raised to support church funds.

Themed around All Things bright and Beautiful, the stunning displays all featured a line from the popular hymn to match – as this was the inspiration for each of the creations showcased.

Pat Hendrickson added: 'We have had the support of the whole of the church, with lots of church members, villagers, people from Reydon and the surrounding villages all attending on Saturday and Sunday.

'It was a very successful weekend and it was lovely to see so many people and displays in the church, which are still on show.'
