Flower festival of colour

COLOURFUL blooms adorned harps, music stands and the ancient font at St Peter’s Church in Portishead for a flower festival organised by the town’s floral art society.

The floral attractions included a tribute to Fred Wetherly, a Victorian lyricist who was born and lived in Portishead, who is best remembered locally for writing the lyrics to Danny Boy.

Members of the group put in hours of hard work to create the scented displays which attracted hundreds of visitors over three days, concluding in a church blessing and evening concert. The event was part of Portishead’s music and arts week programme.
