St Peter’s Church, Dalwood will be hosting a flower festival from Friday, June 15 to Sunday, June 17.

Dalwood Flower Festival will be adopting the theme of ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ and the beautiful 15th century church of St Peter will be decorated with flower arrangements reflecting it.

There will also be arrangements in the churchyard and the village hall, where tea, coffee and cakes will be served in the morning and afternoon, with ploughman’s lunches being served at noon.

Entry to the festival is free, but donations will be shared between maintenance for the historic church and The Project, which is a charity based in Axminster that supports young people on the path to better mental health.

There will be a stand with information about The Project in the churchyard.

There will also be a plant stall and an opportunity to make a posy to take away with you.

On Saturday, at noon, there will be a chance for children to create flower arrangements that will then be hung on the pew ends in the church.

Raffle tickets will be on sale with the draw taking place on Sunday evening.

In the village hall, as well as refreshments, there will be an exhibition of paintings from local art groups and spinning and weaving demonstrations.

On Sunday, June 17, in the church, at 6pm, there will be a Gospel service led by the local female singing group The Kroft Originals.

This is an opportunity to enjoy stunning flower arrangements in a beautiful setting, whilst supporting two very worthwhile causes, with both the church and village hall having goo disabled access.
