June 23rd 1988
Lynsted Church was ablaze with colour at the weekend as it hosted the annual village flower festival.
Mrs Maureen Brown, treasurer of the Flower Festival Committee, said: "It was another tremendous success. We try to invite all the organisations in the village, so socially it is a success because it brings all the different groups together. And this year we again received lots of good comments."
Groups who displayed arrangements included the church bell-ringers, Lynsted and Teynham Cubs, Lynsted and Norton Primary School, the two local Women’s' Institutes, the Association of Men of Kent and Kentish Men, Teynham doctors surgery, the local gardening association, Age Concern and the Darby and Joan Club.
The craft demonstrations proved popular and these included calligraphy, lace making and pottery.
Money raised goes into Flower Festival funds, part of which are later handed over to the Church Restoration Fund.
