Completing the floral display this summer, was the Church of St Mary Magdalene’s Flower Festival and they chose for their theme:
In’spire’ations of Northamptonshire
The subject of each flower arrangement was a clever representation of the wonders of Northamptonshire’s historic attractions and industries. These ranged from ‘The Glories of Geddington’ to ‘Wicksteed Park’ to the ‘Boot & Shoe Industry’ .
Every part of the church had an arrangement in it and your photographer apologises if some of the arrangements are not shown in full, as some are so large that even a wide-angle lens could not encompass them.
The individual arrangements were not identified, but the arrangers, in alphabetical order, were:
Margaret Baker, Val Bellamy, Kathryn Brown, Maureen Crouse, Vic Crouse,
Esther Gordon, Jenny Harker, Margaret Leaton, Veronica Richardson,
Georg Shiells, Sherry Stokes, Margaret Tuffin, Georgie Ward,
Lisa Wilkinson and Rosemary Wootton.
As usual, the flower arrangements were amazing, beautifully crafted and their subject carefully and subtly suggested.
All proceeds will go to the general upkeep of the church.
