Another Successful Flower Festival

The Milford on Sea Flower Festival, which was a collaboration between Milford Floral Art Club and the Flower Arrangers of the Churches of Milford and Everton, took place in All Saints’ Church, Milford on Sea over the weekend 28th to 31st July 2017, and run alongside another very successful Art and Music taking place on the Village Green. All proceeds were divided equally between Oakhaven Hospice Trust and All Saints’ Church Building Repair Fund.

Ladies, Children and Men (!) produced a total of thirty designs using as their theme something which had ‘inspired’ them – hence the title of the Festival - 'Inspirations'. The titles of the ladies’ designs varied from biblical quotes through musical themes, pastimes and paintings to a very moving tribute to the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Passchendale.

The men used stepladders and old paint pots to depict their title ‘Gone to Lunch’ whilst the children used old pairs of ‘wellies’ into which they inserted plastic bottles and garden flowers to depict their title ‘Puddle Jumping’.

To add to the beauty of the flowers and the building musical interludes were included each day, consisting of flute groups, singers, recorder groups, harmonicas, organ music and even traditional jazz.
