A village church was amass with colour at the weekend with the venue's annual flower festival.

St Michael and All Angels Church in Earl Sterndale played host to the four-day floral display, from Friday through to Bank Holiday Monday.

The church was open from 10am until 5.30pm each day, giving visitors the opportunity to take a look at the floral creations which had been arranged by members of the church and village.

The flower festival, with the theme of 'Occupations from the Bible', also included sales tables, a tombola, raffle and refreshments.3
