STUNNING displays of flowers have brought out the best of spring and summer colour to a Thornbury church.

The flower festival ran in St Mary’s Church from Friday to Monday, and was organised in support of Thornbury in Bloom and the church fabric fund, raising more than £1,800.

A total of 37 displays were on show, provided by members of Thornbury, Severn Vale and Winterbourne flower clubs, as well as the church’s own flower arrangers.

“It went very well,” said organiser Jean Boakes. “We had a good turnout each day and everyone who came really enjoyed it.”
