A FLOWER festival is to be held at All Saints’ Church in Peppard to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Members of the church’s flower guild are organising the event, which will take place over the weekend of June 11 and 12. About 30 arrangements, some with red, white and blue flowers, will adorn the church together with a display of images of the village from over the last nine decades.

Guild member Ann Butler-Smith, from Sonning Common, said: “Some of the windows will depict events from the Queen’s life. She is very fond of flowers. This has been put together with help from local historians. There will be about 70 different photos.”

The church pathway willl be lined with baskets of flower arrangements made by children at Peppard Primary School.

Mrs Butler-Smith said: “It’s nice to involve the children. The weekend is going to be tremendous fun. It’s a major celebration in the village.”



The church will be open from 9am to 5pm and tea and cakes will be served in the parish room from 10am to 4pm on both days.
