Quilters and flower arrangers from local churches and groups across Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge created the floral arrangements and showed off their creations.

A unique quilt, with squares made last term by Class 4 at St Joseph’s school, was also on show. It comes after the term topic of ‘bugs’ was an interesting inspiration for the design.
