One of the highlights of summer is always the Mochrum Church Flower Festival.

Once again this year Pauline Todd and her band of talented flower arrangers, young and not so young, put on wonderful show of their talents based on the most topical of themes - the Commonwealth.

The flower festival was open on Saturday and Sunday after church and lunches and cream teas were served by Bridget Hillman and helpers for those attending. Decorative flower presentation bags were on sale and all the stunning exhibits were auctioned for church funds at the close of the festival.

Organiser Pauline Todd was delighted to announce the festival had raised £1280 for church funds.

The exhibits were:
