A FLOWER festival will be held in a Baughurst church.

The festival, in St Stephen’s Church, will take place from Saturday, July 5 to Monday, July 7, between 11am and 5pm each day.

Visitors will be able to vote for their favourite arrangement and the best scarecrow.

There will also be a Songs of Praise service at the church at 6pm on the Sunday and a wine and nibbles evening on Monday at 7pm, followed by the auction of the flowers.

Money raised will be split between local charities and the church.
