Sheringham flower festival tops �13,000

A major flower festival at Sheringham has raised more than �13,000 for church funds and charity.

The event at St Andrew's Methodist Church attracted about 3,000 visitors over a four-day weekend in July.

CHurch and festival secretary Rosa West said the total of �13,608 was just �100 short of the previous record in 2007.

Around 10pc of funds would be given to a cause chosen by festivalgoers - the Sheringham Lifeboat - with the rest going to keep the church-running, from heating and insurance to outreach and youth work, she added.

The church is also selling DVDs of photos from the festival. They are �3.50 (+�1.50 post and packing if out of Sheringham). Contact 01263 823420 or email
