Famous people was the theme for the St Neots Flower Festival at the weekend.

Displays at St Mary’s Church included one of Nelson Mandela and another of Neil Armstrong with a rocket and stars made out of individual flowers.

One of the organisers, Rosemary Darrington, said: “The standard of the flower arranging was very high and every one was different and exciting. Everyone had a lovely time and there was a really lovely atmosphere.”

The event took place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and more than 600 people attended.

Some of the displays are still on show in St Mary’s for visitors to view.
