A festival of music and flowers helped raise much-needed funds for the upkeep of St Peter’s Church at Upwell.

The three-day festival was hailed a great success, with many people from the community visiting.

The church was filled with bright and beautiful flower displays and there was a concert featuring the Gilbert and Sullivan Choir and Teddy’s Boys on the opening evening.

The next day, there was a coffee morning and stalls and the event was rounded off on the Sunday with a Songs of Praise service.

Church reader Daphne Calvert, who organised the event with Ros Shorting, said: “We were really pleased with how it went. Everyone seemed to enjoy it and there was a real community feel to it.”
