Countries Of The World was the theme for a village church’s ‘very successful’ flower festival.
Wedmore Methodist Church hosted the annual two-day event which tasked members with designing a display based on the culture of a country.
Church member Barbara Ellis said: “A steady stream of visitors on both days enjoyed the floral displays and arts and crafts stalls.
“Refreshments served all day were enjoyed by all, and people lingered and chatted over their teas and cakes in the sun at the tables set out on the church lawns.
“This festival has become a very popular event with people returning year after year.”
Wedmore historian Hazel Hudson also charted the origins of Methodism in each featured country and displayed her findings on a large map.
