THE Bishopswood Flower Festival is now open and is a real treat to visit this Bank Holiday weekend. From the arch at the front entrance the church is filled with delicious scents and colours as hundred of blooms have been arranged into a wide variety of floral displays based on the theme of anniversaries.

From wedding anniversaries, such as lace, gold and emerald, to the 50th anniversary of local business M F Freeman, and the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana, there is much to see in this beautiful country church, near Ross-on-Wye.

The All Saints Church Bishopswood Flower Festival is open from Friday, May 26th - Monday, May 29th, from 11am until 4pm.

Refreshments and home-made produce will be on sale, including Breakfast Baps and Cream Teas on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, as well as an exhibition showcasing the local history of Bishopswood and Walford.
