Woodlands Church of the Ascension held its annual flower festival on 12 and 13 September.
The theme of the festival was ‘Lest We Forget’. As well as flower arrangements there were stalls, a raffle and tombola. On 16 September at 7pm, there was a performance in the church of ‘Lest We Forget’ by the Fireside Theatre, which was a commemoration of the 70th anniversary of VE and VJ Days, in words and music.
The event was a great success and all proceeds from the performance went to Verwood Royal British Legion and Woodlands Parish Church.
Although it is the 13th year for the flower festival, it was the first time Anne Micklefield had organised the event. She said, “We had a lot of help with the flowers. Verwood Flower Club was heavily involved and everybody did a wonderful job. I was thrilled with it.”
