Uffington Church was resplendent in bloom for the annual flower festival over the weekend.

St Michael and All Angel’s Church came alive with colour during the three-day festival that ran from Friday (June 28) through to Sunday (June 30).

The theme this year was ‘A Celebration of Village Life’ and included a special preview evening on the Thursday (June 27) evening with well-known gardening broadcaster and journalist, Bunny Guinness.

There was a wide variety of arrangements on display, representing groups such as the Knit and Natter group, Copthill School, Uffington Primary School, G Fest, Walk and Talk group and Uffington Cricket Club.

Decorated crosses representing each of the seven constituent churches that make up the Uffington group of churches were also on display.

The festival was raising money for the church and also Clic Sargent, which supports young people with cancer.

Janet Warburton, one of the organisers, said: “It went very well and everybody that came was very impressed by the flowers that were on display.

“People just kept coming in over the three days.

“The flower arrangements were arranged by Stamford Flower Club members and alsosome by Uffington residents.

“The aim of the flower festival to was to represent all the different groups and activities in the village.

“There were connections to an awful lot of of people and it was a far-reaching event with more scope that a normal flower festival. We wanted it to be diverse.”
