Twenty-four saints were depicted in some stunning floral arrangements at Kilmington Church’s annual flower festival.

This year’s event ran alongside the village exhibition of arts, crafts and photographs, opened by photographer Julian Shaw.

The weekend included a concert in church on the Saturday evening by the Lyme Regis Shanty Singers, under the direction of Penny Dunscombe.

The weekend culminated in an Evensong at St Giles’ Church led by the Reverend Simon Holloway, who thanked Coral Dunmow and Caroline Lavender, who co-ordinated the flower festival, and Pauline Horwood and Diana Church, who organised the exhibition.
