AN Outwell church’s flower festival raised more than £2,200 for church funds.

St Andrew’s Methodist Church, Outwell, which celebrates its 50th birthday this year, welcomed people of all ages to its annual event.

As well as the flower displays, services were held and residents from the surrounding care homes were invited along to enjoy a delicious lunch.

Margaret Spicer, one of the church stewards, said: “We raised £2,213, which is a remarkable amount for a remarkable weekend.

“We are having a few financial struggles and just had to spend a lot on the church car park so the money will make a big difference.

“It is our best ever amount, so it is fair to say the festival was a success.”
