Once again the Annual Flower Festival brought
along the crowds for this two day weekend event
Ample parking was available on the meadow adjacent to The Mount.
|In addition to the flower arrangements inside
the Church, other events were held in the Village Hall, Thatchers Arms together
with Open Gardens.
Yorklette Cottage, Shirley and Davids next to the Village Hall and Olives Garden were open to the public.
At The Church
There are were impressive floral displays, all created by local residents.
Cottage, is a real gem.
Olive's Garden, next to The Church, was also open.
This cottage garden has been created by The Mason family over four generations for the enjoyment of
everyone, young and old.
Its a traditional garden with flowers, vegetables and enchanting areas, with a surprise around every corner.
There's something new to see here every year, but you could discover that for yourself !
Shirley &. Davids Garden, next door To The Village Hall, was open on Saturday.
It`ss a small garden, but with lots packed into it, like The Tardis in the various nooks and crannies.
lts a wonderful tranquil garden to enjoy and well worth the visit.
Mount Bures Village Hall
is the place to be for refreshments throughout the Festival, with cakes,
scones and afternoon Tea.
Theres was a Cake Stall with a wide variety of goodies to buy, and a massive sale of
Bric-a-brac.... you could buy everything you never knew you couldn't do without!
The Village Hall had limited parking, so that was reserved that for the less mobile;
To save your weary legs, you could take advantage of a Courtesy Car which operated as a
shuttle between all the venues every half-hour.
It was easy to spot:- a flower-festooneci, primrose-coloured Fiat.
The Thatchers Arms
was part of The Flower Festival fun all weekend!
Stuart ancl Debbie hosted a Barbecue, and a variety of activities for the children.
At 2:30pm on Sunday, there was a Fun Dog Show where lots of local pets and working dogs - and their owners -
were put through their paces in a light hearted series of tests and games.
