Members of a flower arranging group have been showing off their work ahead of a summer show.

The Stamford Floral Arrangement Society will hold a flower festival at St John’s Church from August 22 to 26.

The society promoted the show on National Flower Arranging Day on Friday last week.

Members were in Morrisons with a range of displays and also installed arrangements in local businesses, including the Mercury office.

The society is now looking for sponsors for the festival, which will have a “material world” theme and will raise money for Wings for Warriors and the Churches Conservation Trust.

Chairman Marilyn Williams said: “We hope people will enjoy the flowers but also pick up on the history of Stamford.”

Call Marilyn on 01780 767983 to sponsor the event.
