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.
The festival is running from today until Sunday, with the church open 9am until 5pm daily with refreshments available.
All are welcome to see the display.
Entry is free but all donations are welcome. Any money raised will be donated to charity.
