Grafham Flower Festival 2021 and Bioblitz

The Flower Festival in All Saints Church, Grafham and the Bioblitz in the churchyard were held over the same weekend in July.

The theme of ‘Buildings’ for the Flower Festival sounded quite daunting, but true to Grafham’s tradition our flower arrangers came up with some amazing displays.

A full account of Grafham Flower Festival 2021 was first published in ‘View from the Pew’ in the September 2021 issue of Grafham Gossip.

Here are some photographs of the occasion.

More photos of the Flower Festival, taken by Richard, can be seen online here -
