Saying it with flowers…

The Mayor of Alnwick, Councillor Geoff Watson, was full of admiration when he officially opened Alnwick Flower Festival tonight.

After viewing the 36 arrangements he commented “The flower arrangements on show are very impressive. The skill of the people who created the arrangements is obvious and the displays reminded me how beautiful the natural world is. This year’s theme is ‘Give Thanks’ and that is very appropriate because as well as the individual messages of thanks for each arrangement we can give thanks that we have come through the pandemic and are able to attend events like this again.”

The Festival is organised jointly by St Michael’s and St Paul’s churches and is open to the public at St Michael’s Church from tomorrow (Thursday) until Sunday.
