CHRISTCHURCH Parish Church will be decorated with 30 stunning flower arrangements from today, as the annual flower festival gets under way.

Organisers are hoping for lots of visitors during the three-day event which raises money for the upkeep of the church.

Residents and village organisations have thought up ideas for the theme of 'Pairs'. Bill and Ben, ebony and ivory; and whisky and soda are just some.

Refreshments will be served in the church and cream teas will be on sale nearby during Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
