Flower power draws visitors to Horsham St Faith

Flower power drew an impressive turnout of visitors to the St Faiths Festival over the weekend.

The medieval church of St Mary and St Andrew, Horsham St Faith was bedecked with floral arrangements depicting some of the world's most famous paintings.

And the colourful show was made even brighter by an exhibition of artwork by pupils from St Faiths Primary School.

The Rev Andrew Beane said: 'The festival is a wonderful way of bringing generations together with young artists working alongside the individuals and groups who have created the 25 flower arrangements.

'Art has a very special place in St Faiths; our church has some unique medieval art work and so it is wonderful that during our weekend we will not only be celebrating our artistic heritage but also encouraging some of our possible future artists.'
