A CHURCH was filled with blooms to mark a momentous anniversary.

St Cuthbert’s Church, in Copnor, held the beautiful show to give people in the area as well as from other churches the chance to show off their flower-arranging skills.

From pink roses to white daisies, the church was filled with bright colours and drew in families and residents from across the Copnor area.

The flower festival was organised by the church to mark its 100th anniversary. Throughout the year, the church, on Lichfield Road, is holding a number of events.

Co-ordinator of the flower festival Beulah Walters said: ‘The theme of the festival was based on a passage from Ecclesiastes 3 - There is a time for everything.

‘It talks about having a time to love and a time to remember so we asked people to base their displays on that.

The response has been amazing and the displays are beautiful.

‘The response has been amazing and the displays were beautiful.

‘Everyone has worked extremely hard.’

As well as marking the centenary celebrations, the festival, held on Saturday, was also raising money for charity.

All proceeds were donated to The Rowans Hospice.

Margaret Shah created a display for a time to love. Her display of pink roses was among a romantic picnic.

She said: ‘All the flowers are fantastic. Everyone did such a great job and the church looked lovely.’
