‘Read all about it’ at St Saviour’s flower festival

BOUQUETS are lining every stained glass window in St Saviour’s Church for the annual flower festival, which gets under way today.

Event organiser Diana Arundale said this year’s theme, Read All About It, was intentionally ambiguous and open to interpretation, so participants could get creative.

More than 26 separate bouquet displays have been embellished with paper decorations, sunglasses and book pages.

Mrs Arundale said all the floral arrangements were beautiful and the church greatly appreciated the islanders who had created them.

‘Some of the arrangements were done by the people in the congregation and others were done by people who don’t go to the church, so that’s really nice for the community.’

The children of the church got involved and crafted flowers from recycled Beano comics, which are now lining the church pews.

‘Making them was great fun. The children really enjoyed it and all the mums and grandparents who came along got involved as well,’ Mrs Arundale said.
