" I spent a delightful evening at the Heslington Church Flower and Art Festival last night. The flower ladies had each chosen a painting as a back drop to their arrangements and selected flowers of similar colours; with quite stunning results. George Smith had donated greenery from his garden and been given a private tour earlier in the evening.
All of the paintings and flowers are for sale and Mark Hearld had donated a limited edition litho print which is being sold by silent auction " Julie Lightburn
The Festival continues Sunday 7th September
