LIMPSFIELD was once again transformed for Limpsfield in Bloom judging day with hanging baskets, pots, flower beds and other displays colouring the village in a sea of purple, green and white to celebrate the end of WW1 and the suffragette movement.
This year St Peter’s Church played host to a three day Flower Festival- as part of the theme of celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the end of WW1 and the women’s suffragette movement, festivities also included a celebration concert.
This was a combined effort between the St Peter’s flower arrangers and other local green-fingered locals, young and old, including the Limpsfield WI, Panda Nursery and Limpsfield CofE Infant School. The festival included 22 floral displays.
Well over 100 people packed out the church to hear St Peter’s Church choir and local singers at the special celebration concert. The first half included choral music and folk songs by Vaughan Williams (celebrating 60 years since the composers’ death) and Hubert Parry (marking 100 years since his death), with favourites including “Jerusalem” and “I was Glad.”
The second half was dedicated some popular war time songs.
