Worthing church hosts Nature’s Bounty flower festival, featuring Chelsea gold medallist

The Church of St Andrew the Apostle, in Clifton Road, Worthing, is celebrating Nature’s Bounty with a flower festival featuring gorgeous floral creations by Worthing Flower Club, celebrating its 65th year, and other local arrangers, plus altar flowers by Chelsea gold medallist Stephen McDonnell.

The preview night on Friday was opened by Sir Geoffrey and Lady Tuema Pattie, with music from the Sussex Folk Orchestra, and there was a craft fair in the church hall on the Saturday morning. Organiser Jonathan Davidson, who used to arrange flowers for the royal family, said: “The church is a hidden gem and it is absolutely fantastic. I invited the businesses who supported us to the preview night. It brings people into the church and it is good to get the community together and see what can be done.”
