If you enjoy seeing the church decorated for special events why not come into church over the Celebration Weekend (beginning on Friday the 10th June) to see how the Church Flower Team have arranged themed flowers to enhance this special event. There will be so much more to see and do over the weekend (in church and in the Parish Hall) including music, exhibitions, tours, a children’s quiz and refreshments, look out for leaflets and posters around the village.

We look forward to seeing you there and helping us celebrate this special event.
