Bloom Bloom! Basil helps raise funds for church flowers

Coffe morning and sale held to finance next year’s Axminster Church flower festival

FUND raising is already under way to finance next year’s flower festival at Axminster Parish Church.

It costs around �1,000 to buy the blooms for the event, which is held in the Minster every two years.

Today (Thursday) the task of raising the money continued with a coffee morning and sale at the Church Rooms, which attracted a steady flow of visitors.

The raffle stall, manned by former Mayor Michael Steer, did especially good business with prizes including bottles and a cuddly Basil Brush.

Organiser Joan Davies said a theme for the 2013 festival had yet to be decided. Last year’s successful event was based on “Composers past and present”.
