      THE three-day Wotton Flower Festival attracted a steady stream of visitors over the Bank Holiday weekend, despite the unwelcome and persistent rain on Saturday.

      The ancient St John's Church was ablaze with colour from all the floral exhibits.

      The theme of the festival was the words of the 17th diarist John Evelyn, who lived at Wotton House and was educated in the church itself. He is buried in the church, along with other members of the Evelyn family.

      A bunch of talented flower arrangers worked hard to put the finishing touches to the floral creations and vivid summer blooms from the garden of Alan and Jill Bridger, at Hollow Lane, added to the vibrancy of the hues.
