Blooming Burton Overy
A project which aims to raise money for the Village Hall, St Andrew’s Church and Kidney Cancer UK will see a special springtime event, Blooming Burton Overy, which will be held on the weekend of 18 and 19 May.
There will be dazzling displays of flower arrangements in the church, stalls in the Village Hall, including a plant stall and a raffle, plus refreshments, and face painting and a ‘Name the Lamb’ competition for children. Admission to the church will be £2.50 for adults, children free.
Mon Amie of Kibworth will be staging flower arranging demonstrations in St Andrew’s Church. Pedestal flowers will be the subject of the demonstrations at 11am on Saturday and on Sunday, while hand-tied flowers, will be the subject of demonstrations at 3pm on both days.
There will be a special Songs of Praise service in the church at 5pm on Sunday 19 May.
Anyone who would like to enter a flower arrangement in the church - formal, informal, or to a theme - is welcome to contact Sally Muir on (0116) 259 3581, or Jo Taylor, on (0116) 259 0086.
