A church was awash with beautiful blooms when it held a flower festival on the theme of anniversaries.
The event at Emmanuel Church in Parson Drove was the first flower festival held there for some years.
It raised £672 which will either go to church upkeep or towards a fund to make next year’s flower festival even bigger and better.
Casey Bates, one of the organisers, said: “People came from Chatteris, Walpole, March, Wisbech to our little church, many who hadn’t seen it before, who all commented how pretty it is.
“It was not only a success but we were also offered help from other flower arrangers who want to get involved when we hold another event.”

Coffee, tea and cake were served alongside the chance to browse the displays and organist Julia Dunne entertained for one evening.
The festival ended with evensong joined by choirs from Parson Drove and Wisbech St Mary who joined forces for the festival finale.
