FLORAL fans worked through the night to ensure their blooming displays were picture perfect for a flower festival.
There were 16 colourful exhibits at this year’s Marsworth Flower Festival which had a glamourous theme of On With The Show!
Philippa Taylor, from the Marsworth Flower Festival Committee, said: “They were quite splendid flower arrangements and the arrangers make sure they look their very best.
“The flowers are delivered on the Wednesday, they start setting up on the Thursday and it takes as long as it takes.
“They are a dedicated bunch.
“It is purely done for the joy of being part of the festival.”
“Everybody was saying ‘wow you have surpassed yourselves’.”
The show is held every other year and the weekend’s event, which ran from Friday to Monday, was the 19th one to be held at All Saints Church in the village.
In 2009 it raised £12,000 towards the general upkeep of the historic church and organisers hope to have reached a similar amount this time around. The total raised is still being counted.
Displays are sponsored by businesses and village residents and extra cash is raked in by stalls selling goodies, a raffle and donations by visitors over the three days.
