Flower festivals at village churches in the Moorlands

FLOWER festivals are busting into bloom at two village churches in the Staffordshire Moorlands this weekend.

There is three-day festival at St Lawrence’s Church, Warslow, and a five-day festival in the neighbouring village of Longnor at St Bartholomew’s Church.

Organisers of St Bartholomew’s festival have chosen ‘Saints’ as their theme while ‘My Favourite Hymn’ is the theme at St Lawrence’s.

Both festivals commence tomorrow (Aug 5) and will be open daily with refreshments available: St Lawrence 12pm-6pm and St Bartholomew 10.30am-4.30pm.

Anyone who would like to help at either event is invited to contact Emma Gould (St Lawrence) on 01298 687190 or Sharon Ford (St Bartholomew) on 01298 83512
