Festival of Flowers – Report and Pictures

A festival of flowers and memorabilia in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday was held at St Martins Church Overstrand on the 11/12th June. 2016.
It was well attended with over 135 people enjoying the exhibits and flower arrangements, not forgetting the tasty refreshments.
The festival was arranged by Mrs Jill Bennett and her wonderful team of volunteers with Tim to the fore. Stewards ensured everything went smoothly on the day.
The flower displays were outstanding. Exhibits included those from the Strand Club, the Gardening Club, Ivy Farm, the Women’s Institute, a garden party, artwork from pupils of the Belfry School, a quilt arrangement and various memorabilia of the Queen’s reign.
DVDs of Overstrand were played thanks to Peter and Derek. Music was provided by Eric on the organ and Keith and Danny on Violin and Guitar.
A collection was made for the Red Cross and raised £437.20.
