All Saints Church in Beeston Regis became a riot of colour at the weekend as a nautical-themed flower festival was held.

The festival was arranged in conjunction with the ladies from Cromer Flower Club, and money was raised to install a much-needed toilet at the church.

Locals, visitors and holidaymakers enjoyed warm drinks and homemade scones, heard music from the Poppyland Brass Band and admired 13 exhibits, which depicted scenes including Cromer Pier and lifeboats.

The Rector, Revd David Head said the festival was “the most magnificent success” and went on to say: “The number of people through the door, the increased energy in the congregation, the fact that the church looked so stunning, everything was just brilliant.”

The flower club meets on the third Monday of each month at Cromer Junior School, visitors and new members are welcome.
