THREE of our local churches were decked out with flowers for weekend festivals.

St Mary’s at Whaplode celebrated All our Yesterdays, Crowland Abbey was on pointe with A Night at the Ballet and Lutton St Nicholas Church went global with Countries of the World.

The flower festival at Crowland Abbey is its main fundraiser of the year and the team of talented arrangers let their imaginations loose to create arrangements inspired by ballets such as Coppelia, Sleeping Beauty and Giselle.

Lutton’s talented arrangers managed to fit the world into St Nicholas Church with creative floral displays paying tribute to countries such as Pakistan, Egypt and Brazil.

Whaplode’s celebrations began on Friday as arrangers took a trip down memory lane to create some stunning floral creations inspired by familiar objects from the past and local history.

All our Yesterdays came to an end on Tuesday evening with a community hog roast.

Georgina Hearn, who helped out selling raffle tickets, said: “The flowers are lovely.

“They have all been working very hard.
