A record total has been raised at a village church’s annual flower festival.
Wedmore Methodist Church, in Sand Road, held the two-day event with a theme of 200 years of history, to coincide with its 200th anniversary celebrations.
Exhibits ranged from the accession of Queen Victoria to the throne and both World Wars, to the last flight of the Concorde and Queen Elizabeth’s Sapphire Jubilee.
The festival raised a total of £1,500 for the church.
Barbara Ellis, a club member, said: “There was a steady stream of visitors throughout both days, with many complimentary comments on the inventiveness and interpretation of the various subjects displayed in flowers and historical items.
“Everyone at Wedmore Methodist Church would like to thank all the exhibitors for their beautiful and ingenious displays, and the visitors who came and generously supported this annual event which grows in popularity each year.”
