Organisers of a Fenland church flower festival were “absolutely thrilled” with the support they received over the weekend.
Casey Bates, one of the driving forces behind the Emmanuel Church festival at Parson Drove, said: "It was our third year of running it and definitely our best so far."
She said people from around the area had helped with the festival including those from Guyhirn, Gorefield and Whittlesey.
"We were absolutely thrilled with the response," she said. "It takes an enormous amount of work to put it on but already people are asking if we are going to organise another next year."
Visitors to the three day festival were able to see stunning displays around the theme 'nursery rhymes and children's books' and refreshments were served throughout.
