A popular annual flower festival will be showcased at a historic church this weekend.

St Botolph's Church in North Cove will hold its annual flower festival over the bank holiday weekend of Saturday, April 29, Sunday, April 30 and Monday, May 1.

Funds will be raised to help keep North Cove Church and Barnby Church open.

The theme chosen for this year's festival at St Botolph's is 'things we are thankful for.'

The church will be open from 10am until 4pm each day, and there will also be a display of art work from the children of Barnby Primary School, the chance to win a weekend breakaway for two, various stalls and refreshments. Entrance will be by voluntary donation.
