Colour fills one of the most beautiful churches in the Fens as it stages its annual flower festival.
Walpole St Peter’s Church has been decked out with displays on the theme of weddings through the years, as it stages its 57th festival.
There are also market stalls selling cakes, jewellery, books, jigsawas, bric-a-brac, fresh produce as well as activities, demonstrations, games, music and dancing.
Savouries, cakes and hot and cold drinks are being served all day in the marquee cafe, too, with salad lunches served in the dining hall from 12noon.
The event got under way with a peal of bells on Saturday.
Sunday’s highlights included the flower festival service, train rides, balsa wood gliders and ukulele band.
There is maypole dancing at 1.30pm today (Monday June 4) while the Anthony Curton School Choir will perform at 1.30pm on Tuesday.
