Organisers of this year’s flower festival at Walpole St Peter had a nervous few days ahead of this weekend’s opening as high winds prevented many of the marquees and tents from being erected

However cometh the day cometh the village enterprise and it opened with everything, as they say, in the garden looking splendid.

This year new additions were added – many of them for the children- so there is plenty to see and enjoy both inside and outside the church.

A miniature railway was a great attraction, as too were Molly Dancers, and Punch and Judy.

The event continues today and other events take place on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

This year’s theme is ‘Theatre and Musicals’. Over the years the flower festival has seen much change, say the organisers, and they’re hoping for another bumper success.
