Hepworth Flower Festival

The weekend of 24th -25th September saw St Peter’s Church full of colour, when 17 flower arrangers produced wonderful decorations on the theme of ‘Harvest’. As well as flowers, there were seeds and fruits in evidence, including rose hips and blackberries, crab apples and hops.

There was an arrangement to celebrate the Lavender Harvest and a display of apples and apple products, including cider. The beautiful 14th century font cover was open to hold a collection of arrangements by Lyn Walker.

The festival finished on Sunday afternoon with our Harvest Festival, where a good quantity of food was donated for the Food Bank.

Very many thanks to everyone who made flower arrangements for us, as well as to the ladies who provided refreshments over the weekend in the Pavilion.

Thanks also to those who donated to the plant stall, which became a demonstration of the plants that survive drought!

A final thank you to everyone who braved the road closure and made it through to the church
