Urr Flower Festival

24 Jul 2015

The Urr Centenery Flower Festival, which was held on the 3-5th July was very well attended over the three days with people coming from surprisingly far afield to view the arrangements.  The theme of the Festival was "creation" to reflect the 100 year anniversary of the first service taking place in the present church in 1915.  The flower arrangers took their inspiration from the Book of Genesis Chapter 1.  Many visitors left complimentary messages in the visitors book about the quality and artistic merit of the arrangements.

 

 

During the Festival, refreshments were served in the village hall and many visitors took advantage of this facility which also included a display of the history of Urr Church together with memorabilia.  Overall, the festival raised around £1300 for the church.
