A four-day flower festival at St Michael’s Church in Beccles saw hundreds of visitors enjoying the colourful displays.
The festival had a celebration theme, and also saw performances from the Wrentham Band and Searchlight Theatre Company, who attracted good crowds.
Rector of Beccles, Reverend Rich Henderson, said: “It was a real joy to see so many people come through the doors to enjoy all that was on offer. Thank you to all who came along and to everyone who helped to make the weekend possible.”
As well as the displays, refreshments and lunches were on offer and with the good weather seating was provided on the terrace for people to enjoy the wonderful views across Waveney from the church.
The festival weekend, from June 15 to 18, raised just over £3,000, and the money will be used to support various parish mission and ministry projects.
Rev Henderson added: “We are continuing to develop the building at St Michael’s so that it serves and support community events.”
